Saudi Arabian technology leader and major IT supplier to the government builds local web accessibility skills capacity by commissioning Media Access Australia to deliver customised onsite version of specialist course.
A key player in the successful implementation of a digital accessibility strategy can be an ‘accessibility champion’ – someone who can lead accessibility initiatives, provide expert input into decisions, and design and develop processes that help an organisation embed accessibility into its practices and culture. This role can originate in web development, web design, content management or communications departments, but the key is that an accessibility champion should undertake foundation-level training in accessibility compliance.
The Federal Government has announced the creation of the Digital Transformation Office (DTO) and a new Digital Service Standard (DSS). Media Access Australia has put together an FAQ to help organisations and individuals better understand what the DTO and the DSS means for them.
