This toolkit has been prepared in collaboration with the Department of Premier and Cabinet and is an expansion of the South Australian Government’s award-winning Online Accessibility Toolkit.
The online accessibility toolkit is a ‘quick-start’ online guide about how to make digital products, content and services accessible. It was co-designed in consultation with people with lived experience of disability, the disability sector and over 100 organisations. The approach has drawn significant praise as it highlights the value in ensuring people with disability have the leading role in shaping policies and creating programs which influence their lives. Expanding the toolkit to include other forms of communications, ensures a broader range of people are reached and have accessible and available information.
In responding to the expectations of Inclusive SA (Action 21) the Online Accessibility Toolkit has been expanded, drawing on additional information provided by State and local government agencies, people with lived experience of disability, the wider disability sector and community, and open-source disability information.
This toolkit is for reference only, is not a complete guide and may be added to or expanded over time. References to third parties are provided for your information only and not as an endorsement by the South Australian Government.
There are four Inclusive SA toolkits that have been developed in consultation with a range of stakeholders (recognising that the South Australian Government’s Online Accessibility Toolkit already existed and has been expanded as a part of the development of the four toolkits).
JFA Purple Orange was engaged to co-design stage one of the toolkits. Over 100 State government agencies and local councils were invited to contribute to the content. We engaged Vision Australia and Funktion as industry experts to provide an expert review.
The draft Accessible and Inclusive toolkits were released for public consultation. The Department of Human Services received feedback from people with lived experience of disability, service providers and community groups, with a number of ideas and resources incorporated into the final toolkits.
