Improving Visually Impaired Students’ Access to Graphics in Higher Education – Pilot study

Calling all vision impaired students. Could you benefit from better access to the graphs, tables, diagrams and mathematics in your learning materials? If so, you are invited to take part in a pilot study to trial new processes and technologies.

We will work with you and university staff to determine the most suitable additions to your usual support. This may include:

  • accessible formats such as interactive electronic diagrams, written descriptions, and tactile graphics
  • interactive 3-dimensional campus map with audio labels
  • training and support for you and university staff
  • and more

You will be asked to complete a screening interview up to 30 minutes in length to discuss your accessible formats requirements. Participants will then be selected to represent a diverse range of profiles.

Pilot participants should be available for weekly communication with the researchers. At the end of the semester, you will be asked to complete a final interview.

To register your interest or for further information, please contact Leona Holloway at or (03) 9903 2401. Participation is voluntary and confidential.
