Department Of Communications And The Arts: Communications Accessibility – 2016 And Beyond

May 2016

This ACDA submission on the future of the National Relay Scheme argues against changes to the Telecommunications Regulations which would lead to a reliance on the Disability Discrimination Act 1992 to ensure equal access to telecommunications technology for people with disability. The telecommunications industry must be proactively supported by government to ensure that all forms of telecommunications are accessible and affordable to people with disability. ACDA supports the creation of an independent body to inform and monitor these actions to ensure that the telecommunication industry becomes increasingly disability responsive and inclusive.
