Communication Accessibility Guidelines 

A guide for event organisers

The aim of the publication ‘Communication Accessibility Guidelines for Meetings and Public Events’ is to ensure that event organisers provide for the communication needs of deaf and people with hearing impairment so they may fully participate in various functions.

The Guidelines is complementary to existing Disability Accessibility Guidelines with a key focus on communication access containing three core requirements:

  • Sign Language Interpreting
  • Induction loop (or hearing loop)

Captioning

The responsibility for provision of communication access falls with event organisers and hosts. This Guide helps organisers and hosts to take consideration of accessibility needs for deaf and hard of hearing people and to minimise risk of potential discrimination under the Disability Discrimination Act 1992.

The Guidelines document was developed by Deaf Children Australia, led by its Manager Community Relations, Kyle Miers (www.deafchildrenaustralia.org.au) and in collaboration with Deafness Forum, Deaf Australia, Australian Sign Language Interpreting Association, The Captioning Studio and Australian Federation of Deaf Societies.
