Accessibility In Transition: From Remediation to Born Accessible in Post-Secondary Education

This paper examines the evolution of accessibility from the analog to the digital era, and the different frameworks supporting accessibility. A model framework is presented that encompasses accessibility for education in the digital era. Presented by AMAC Accessibility Solutions and published by G3ict in May 2015.

Information and communication technologies (ICT) have always played an integral role in empowering persons with print-related disabilities to participate and succeed in post-secondary education. The ubiquitous availability of new digital materials also ushered in a new era of accessibility. For the first time, instructional materials could be made accessible from inception, potentially removing constraints of timeliness and capacity.
