Abstract

Access to information is a basic right of all students, but this entitlement is not always available to blind or visually impaired students at every Australian university. Our wish to remedy this situation has led to an exploration of alternate uses of technologies such as the Internet, multimedia CDs and assistive software. Through personal experience, and the innovative design of two University subjects, this paper highlights the pressing need for research in this area, and presents possible solutions to this inequitable situation.
