More than 3.55 million Australians are deaf or hearing impaired

Are you producing important information for the general public but failing to reach all your audience?
Let’s look at some key facts…
More than 3.55 million Australians are deaf or hearing impaired. And over 575,000 Australians are blind or vision impaired with more than 70 per cent of those over the age of 65.
These people deserve to be informed in your communication strategy. And for government departments and agencies it is mandatory that online information be WCAG 2.0 AA compliant which means your online videos need to contain captions for deaf and hearing impaired and audio description for blind and vision impaired.
It is important that all Australians have the opportunity to read what they cannot hear and hear what they cannot see. Access Media makes it easy and cost effective for you to communicate with people with hearing or vision difficulties, or where your audience is from a different cultural or linguistic background.
Remember too, these people are a valued audience, customers and service users.
