Tertiary Access for Blind or Vision Impaired

Guidelines – Online Tertiary Access for Students and Staff who are Blind or Vision Impaired

Increasingly there are demands on educators to integrate technology into tertiary education and training.

However the technology must be both accessible and inclusive to create equitable learning experiences.

Learners, educators and other professional staff who are blind or vision impaired and studying or working in the tertiary sector in Australia often experience a range of barriers, particularly when the learning is provided online.
