Digital Accessibility Services

Who we are

Digital Access at Vision Australia is recognised internationally as an industry leader in the provision of digital accessibility services, equally addressing the needs of all disability groups. Specialising in web accessibility consultancy, training and testing, our services are expertly designed to help our customers make their digital presence accessible to all.

Our advice and training is based on the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.0, formulated by the World Wide Web Consortium’s Web Accessibility Initiative (W3C WAI). A member of the W3C since 2002, Digital Access significantly contributed to the creation of WCAG 2.0.

As a social enterprise, the fee-based services provided by Digital Access directly support Vision Australia’s wider activities. Our unique position working within a disability organisation ensures that end-users’ real world requirements are foremost in all the services we deliver.

What are we up to?

We’ve seen a real shift in attitudes towards accessibility in the last 18 months. Government has moved past a tick-box mentality towards a user-centred approach. In turn, private sector organisations have embraced inclusive design practices in their business strategies. Accessibility is becoming part of the process, rather than an afterthought.

The proof is in the work we’re doing. We’re developing Accessibility Implementation Plans that have touch points across entire organisations; we’re conducting Design Reviews to ensure accessibility is built-in from the start; we’re delivering User-Based Evaluations to ensure practical usability; and we’re educating hundreds of designers, developers and content authors through our training. We’re very proud to be at the forefront of such positive change.

Find out how the Australian Government plans to carry accessibility and inclusive design into the future in our article on the Digital Service Standard.
