Technology is a game-changer for ensuring that people with a disability can access information, employment, and goods and services; but this only works if organisations systematically plan for accessible technology. The costs of planning for inclusion are minute in comparison to the costs of work-arounds and retrofits. Usually those plans are around mainstream technology and existing platforms and approaches.
The Australian Network on Disability has found that existing employees are often frustrated about inaccessible technology getting in the way of their job; ICT practitioners are looking for a more systematic approach for obtaining non-standard ICT equipment; procurement teams are unsure about developing appropriate request for tenders and require advice on purchasing ICT; and HR professionals are looking for guidance on ICT reasonable adjustments.
Scheduled for Thursday, October 29, this free Forum on ICT Accessibility is a must-attend for all CIOs and CTOs and anyone responsible for ICT in your ogranisation.
This forum is an exclusive briefing and chance to meet and discuss issues with world experts in practical accessibility. For more information, please visit website.
