Infosys publishes landmark business digital access journey report

Access to information and communication technologies – including the internet; is a basic human right. At least it should be, especially as society continues to live and work in a digital world, accelerated significantly by the COVID-19 pandemic. However, many people have been left behind in an increasingly digital world, people with disability making up a large proportion. In Australia, one in every five people has a disability, while in New Zealand, the number is one in four. This scale shows that Digital Accessibility is simply non-negotiable if the benefits of a digital era are to be available to all.

Digital Accessibility includes everything from designing websites and documents that can be read by screen readers to providing subtitles on audio-visual media.  Across the globe, strides are being taken to embed these solutions into all communications. Not all organizations are putting Digital Accessibility into everyday practice.
