Media Access Australia - inclusion through technology
Media Access Australia is Australia’s only independent not-for-profit organisation dedicated to increasing web and digital access to media for people with a disability.
Access to media, enabled through technology, empowers people to be more independent, to gain knowledge, make their own informed choices, and be active members of our society.
We promote inclusion by providing helpful information and specialist expertise on the accessibility of mainstream technologies to government, industry, educators, consumer groups and individuals – across popular online media, digital technology, television, video, cinema, the arts, and education.
Working as a catalyst for change, Media Access Australia is focussed on improving accessibility through advocacy, education, digital accessibility services, and a range of practical training courses designed for individuals and organisations. We assist all sorts of people including those who are blind or vision impaired, Deaf or hearing impaired, or who have a cognitive disability.
We demonstrate how media accessibility can be improved in practical ways, by piloting innovative ideas and major projects.
We seek to improve national and international web accessibility standards as a member of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C), an international online community where the general public and organisations work together to develop web standards.
We are a national organisation, based in Sydney, with a satellite office in Perth.
