Amy Hogan, Why we need Accessibility Standards

Amy Hogan, Co-chair of Access Matters Aotearoa, is here to provide you with the tools you need to engage with your local MP concerning the urgent need for strong accessibility legislation in Aotearoa New Zealand.

Ever wondered about the rules when you encounter an Access Barrier? Access Matters has you covered!

We believe that accessibility legislation should encompass Accessibility Standards. These standards act as crucial guidelines or rules that must be adhered to, ensuring that individuals with disabilities or specific access needs can easily purchase products, utilize services and access various environments.

These standards, in essence, make life easier for everyone. Think of them as a roadmap towards inclusivity. For instance, an accessibility standard could dictate that websites must incorporate alternative text descriptions for images. This ensures that individuals who are blind can comprehend the content by using screen reading devices.

Let's champion a more accessible future together! Join us in advocating for accessibility legislation with teeth.
