Australia For All Alliance – a hard-working community group made up of people with disabilities and their carers – now has a braille embosser which can emboss both sides of an A4 sheet of paper.
Restaurants are starting to realise that there are many visually impaired people in our community and that they would prefer to read flyers and menus themselves.
Large print will also help diners who find it difficult to read the small print often found on menus.
Australia For All aims to have both braille and large print menus available in as many clubs and restaurants as possible.
The cost of supplying braille and large print copies of menus will be $30.00 a set.
If it’s likely that menu prices will change within six months, restaurant owners could have the menus produced without the cost of the individual meals shown.
Australia For All has produced two new booklets to help tourism providers understand what is required to make their facilities accessible to people with disabilities.
1. Small Changes Can Make A Big Difference: A Practical Guide to the Disability Discrimination Act and The Disability Standards For Accessible Public Transport for Small Businesses & Tourism Industry Operators
2. A Guide to Assist Tourism Operators to Encompass ‘Accessibility’
The booklets are sold in sets for $5.00 per set + postage ($2.50 for one set). Postage for multiple sets would have to be advised.
Two excellent initiatives from the Australia For All Alliance.
