Accessible Information Database

Being able to gain information is essential for an individual to make informed decisions. It is also common law right. Accessible Information Solutions is committed to empowering individuals to independently access the information of their choice.

Requesting Information in Alternative Formats

If the organisation you are seeking does not appear in this list, we strongly encourage you to make contact with the organisation and request the information personally. Below are some simple hints you may find useful :

  1. Make contact with the company through the general information line or send an email
  2. Don't be discouraged if the Customer Service Representative you are talking to is not helpful or confused. If this happens request to talk to their supervisor
  3. If you find the outcome unsatisfactory, you can contact Blind Citizens Australia or the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission (HREOC) who will be able to assist you in your efforts.

Ordering Alternative Formats for Regular Publications

Some organisations enable you to order information in your preferred format so that it is distributed to you as soon as it is prepared. These organisations include Australian Tax Office (Tax Tape), National Rugby League (Fixtures), Australian Council for the Arts (Grants and Funding Handbook) and Sydney Festival (Program).

To order, please ring 1800 644 855
