OZeWAI is the professional association for Australian digital accessibility specialists and organisations.
OZeWAI is a not-for-profit membership-based association that focuses on the design and implementation of inclusive digital information, services, experiences and policies that enable people to participate with dignity on an equal basis.
OZeWAI exists because we recognise that design decisions can either enable and include or disable and exclude people, particularly those with permanent disabilities. We believe digital accessibility is a human right and identifying and removing barriers to participation is essential for some and useful for all.
OZeWAI promotes and improves member understanding and capacity through networking, education, research and certification. OZeWAI has done so since its inception in the early 1990s.
Our vision is that Australians with disability can enjoy, benefit from, and participate fully and equally in the digital economy in accordance with their human rights and Australian law.
To define, support and promote the digital accessibility profession in Australia and the Asia Pacific region in order to design and implement inclusive digital information, resources, services, experiences and policies that enable people to participate with dignity on an equal basis.
