Latest MAA Annual Report now available online

no

Media Access Australia held its AGM on 26 October 2010 and approved the annual report and accounts. Media Access Australia had a successful year with significant progress in cinema, education, television, downloads, and digital technology and online media access.

Media Access Australia CEO Alex Varley said, “I am pleased to see continuous progress in media access, particularly in the rapidly changing new media area. We have firmly established ourselves as the first port of call for consumers, government and business for issues connected with media access. None of this could happen without our successful collaboration with community organisations and international partners.”

“Our team is continuing to grow and it is a pleasure to work with such knowledgeable and passionate people.”

Varley and McGrath each took the time to explain what drew them to the work of Media Access Australia. This led to a discussion about some of the major projects being undertaken by Media Access Australia such as Your Local Cinema and the Classroom Access Project.

Civic Video makes commitment to access features

no

National home entertainment video store Civic Video has begun a new online service to promote accessible DVDs.

Instigated by audio described DVD fan Jeff Parker, Civic Video realised that promoting audio described and captioned DVDs made perfect sense.  By promoting accessible product on its website and providing a database of accessible titles to each store location, Civic Video can reach more DVD fans who may otherwise find it difficult to recognise accessible movies. 

At this point in time, the website and database will cater for each month’s top 10 movies.
