The report, Online but off-track conducted by Vision Australia and endorsed by Disability Discrimination Commissioner Alastair McEwin has identified online learning environments as a growing concern to people who are blind or have low vision. The respondents who had studied at 24 of the 39 Australian public universities, also identified issues with lack of understanding and timely support from disability services staff, unwillingness of staff to make changes to course delivery formats and inconsistency in the provision of reasonable adjustments. General Manager of Government Relations and Advocacy at Vision Australia, Karen Knight is also a postgraduate student who has experienced the accessibility barriers firsthand.
