Print Disability Services Program
VisAbility currently receives funding from the Print Disability Services Program so we can provide alternative formats to eligible people for free. The aim is to improve access to printed material to all Australians.
There’s no charge for people aged 65 or over and for individuals who don’t have a National Disability Insurance Scheme (NDIS) plan in place.
The program produces alternative formats of printed and digital material, to meet the needs of people living with a print disability.
For example, we can turn PDF documents into accessible Word format, provide audio recordings or convert manuals into Braille.
Read Kathryn Hewitt’s story to discover how we could help her when she needed some training manuals transcribed into acccessible formats. Kathryn is legally blind and a hypnotherapist based in Bunbury. She came to us because she wanted to further expand her qualifications.
VisAbility’s Accessible Information Services and Library Services provides a range of options for alternative materials. The funding will be used to support the growth and development of these services, ensuring the continued production and conversion of materials into Braille, large print, tactical graphics and e-text as well as audio files and DAISY readers.
