Led by Australian Greens disability issues spokesperson Senator Rachel Siewert, the app creates a direct line between people with disability and the people in parliament who can help improve physical access policy. When a user submits an access issue, an email is sent to Senator Siewert, who will then compile a report for other disability policy makers.
The app, available in iPhone, iPad and Android versions, was tested by our digital media team, with pleasing results. Both the versions are accessible to people using their devices with assistive technology.
Media Access Australia’s project manager Dr Scott Hollier, a white cane user, said, “The app provides a great opportunity for people with disabilities to raise their concerns about physical access issues in a way that can help others and potentially lead to change.”
