This guide will help to ensure that your digital media project meets accessibility standards according to the Accessibility for Ontarians with Disabilities Act ( AODA ).
Select the digital media format you are working with from the left sidebar. This will take you to the page for your format. There, it will list the measures you should take to ensure that your chosen digital media format meets accessibility standards.
Different digital media (video and audio content) require different components to make them accessible. It is important to consider accessibility before you begin your multimedia project. It should be a forethought and not an afterthought. Use this guide to learn how to make your projects accessible.
Accessibility standards are important because they support dignity, independence, integration and equal opportunity for all persons with a disability.
The AODA is the development, implementation and enforcement of accessibility standards in order to achieve accessibility for Ontarians with disabilities with respect to goods, services, facilities, accommodation, employment, buildings, structures and premises on or before January 1, 2025.
