Low vision / blindness

Access to media and technology is key to improving learning outcomes for students who are blind or have low vision. These students often require both specialist and mainstream technology to access curriculum content, both at school and at home.

To access educational content on DVDs and online, students require audio description. There has been an increase in audio described content available on new release DVDs which may assist students at school.

In 2013 Media Access Australia undertook a study of vision education services, entitled the Vision Education Scoping Report, which is available for download.
