The strategy will be developed, informed and refined by broad-based consultations with:

  • People with print disabilities and/or groups representing them to ensure services meet their needs.
  • The library community to develop service standards.
  • Publishers and producers of materials in multiple formats to raise awareness and strengthen the linkages between them.

These consultations will explore issues related to access to published information for people with print disabilities.
