In the world of communications technology, ‘convergence’ refers to the major communications platforms (broadcasting, telecommunications and online) coming together so that their once separate functions overlap. Video content, for example, that used to be available only on television can now be viewed easily over the Internet.
Media Access Australia believes that it is important the Convergence Review consider the impact of convergence on accessibility, including the barriers and opportunities provided by convergent media.
For more information about convergence and access, visit our Convergence Review section. Information on how to access convergent media can be found in our digital technology and online media sections.
