Vision Australia (VA) has a bold new plan of making 100% of information available to its clients in accessible formats. Vision Australia Information Library Service has introduced a number of revolutionary new services, making current news and information available to people who have a print disability. Emphasis is on multiple access methods and format choices for clients using technology that maximises client choice. These services are being developed as part of a five year plan called the i-access program, at an estimated cost of $30 million dollars over five years.
