Co-designed with not-for-profits, people with disability and leaders in the disability sector, the South Australian Government’s publicly available Online Accessibility Toolkit (accessibility.sa.gov.au) seek to combine policy with practical solutions to promote human rights and access to technology.

The toolkit works by assisting organisations and governments in making their digital platforms accessible for a range of people, including but not limited to, those with disability; older Australians and people from non-English speaking backgrounds.

The toolkit contains resources on subjects like accessible visual design, content and user experience. The policy toolkit has been endorsed as an international benchmark for government by Vision Australia and the Royal Society for the Blind SA, as well as being nominated for a 2019 Australian Human Rights Award.
