We’ve been awarded $34,158 as part of the ACCAN 2014 Grants Scheme!
ACCAN received 85 submissions this year, many from leading research organisations. Our project was selected as one of only seven to receive funding this year.
The concept for our submission was the development of a Document Accessibility Toolbar (DAT) – a standard add-in for Microsoft Word so that every person who creates a Word document has access to a range of automated tools for easy implementation of accessibility techniques.
Free to download, the DAT will not only make accessible document creation easier, it will make government and industry more accountable, and strengthen people’s rights to advocate for content accessibility. Ultimately, the DAT will ensure equal access to information for people with disability.
We’re thrilled to be leading a project that has the potential to make such a positive impact! Subscribe to our e-newsletter to keep in touch with our progress.
