FaHCSIA’s web accessibility video
This contribution comes from the Web Operations Team at the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services & Indigenous Affairs.
December 2012 will see AGIMO’s first deadline for all Australian Government agencies to meet WCAG 2.0 Level A requirements as outlined in the Web Accessibility National Transition Strategy (NTS).
Earlier this year, the Department of Families, Housing, Community Services and Indigenous Affairs (FaHCSIA) produced a short video to raise awareness of web accessibility among its staff. It was hoped that a short, catchy video would assist their internal education purposes and bring some attention to the work they are doing to meet the NTS.
The video was released internally and on YouTube on 2 May 2012. Since its release, FaHCSIA has received good feedback and discussions have taken place around the world about the video and its ability to capture key messages in less than 5 minutes.

We hope other agencies can make use of this video as part of their education efforts.
