5 Deakin University CRICOS Provider Code: 00113B OUR LEGAL OBLIGATIONS Transitioning to WCAG 2.0 The ICT Governance Board requires all Australian Government websites to implement WCAG 2.0 to meet the middle level of conformance (Double A) over a four-year period. (by Dec 2014) The provision of information and online services through the web is a service covered by the DDA. Deakin is a government website for the purposes of complying with WCAG 2.0 because universities fall under the federal Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations for funding and reporting. Para 4.2 of the HRC advisory note is not directed at or applicable to Deakin. Equal access for people with a disability in this area is required by the DDA where it can reasonably be provided.

10 Deakin University CRICOS Provider Code: 00113B FIVE STAGES OF ACCESSIBILITY Denial “This is a web ‘application‘ so those rules don’t apply to us” “We’re not the government so we don’t have to make this accessible”

11 Deakin University CRICOS Provider Code: 00113B FIVE STAGES OF ACCESSIBILITY Anger “I can’t believe they’re making us do this!” “This is just going to cost us money that we’ll never make back!”

12 Deakin University CRICOS Provider Code: 00113B FIVE STAGES OF ACCESSIBILITY Bargaining “What about making it just level A compliant instead of AA?” “Can we just leave that part for later?”

13 Deakin University CRICOS Provider Code: 00113B FIVE STAGES OF ACCESSIBILITY Depression “Sigh. We’ve done all this work, and its made no difference, and that consultant still told us we did it wrong…” “This is really hard, and there’s so much to think about”
