Incorporation of OZeWAI

OZeWAI is now an incorporated association. All interested in OZeWAI will still be able to participate but there will be new categories for paid-up members and others and certain privileges available to them. At 2017 OZeWAI Conference there will be an annual general meeting and elections.

The new constitution is available online for your perusal.


Resources

There is an old 'hyperlecture' on accessibility that might be of interest. It was developed in the late 1990's and distributed so that people who did not know much about accessibility could nevertheless present the issues to their work colleagues, in particular. This was a 'hyperlecture' meaning that it was a lecture that could be accessed via its links to significant depth, thus providing the materials for a typical one-semester university course.

There has been a series of OZeWAI conferences. The conference websites are mostly maintained as they were and many of the presentations have been archived:

1998, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018.

There is now a vast amount of information about accessibility on the Web. Search engines will help you find it.
