are sponsoring the conference this year - thank you!
Here's what one participant said after an OZeWAI conference:
"It has been a great conference when:
- You feel like you have turned 360 degrees in the wind
- You travel home with a smile on your face
- You can't stop thinking about fantastic people that you have met
- You think about catching up with those people again
- You can't wait to try out what you have learnt
- Being a nerd, you try what you have learnt straight away (I love the Jamaican accent in NVDA)
- The future seems closer and yet further away at the same time
That describes some of my feelings after this years' OZeWAI conference."

Incorporation of OZeWAI
OZeWAI is transforming into an incorporated association and so a new constitution has been drawn up and is in the process of being registered. All interested in OZeWAI will still be able to participate but there will be new categories for paid-up members and others and certain privileges available to them. All this will be completed by the time of the 2013 Conference so a President, Secretary and Committee members can be elected.
There is an old 'hyperlecture' on accessibility that might be of interest. It was developed in the late 1990's and distributed so that people who did not know much about accessibility could nevertheless present the issues to their work colleagues, in particular. This was a 'hyperlecture' meaning that it was a lecture that could be accessed via its links to significant depth, thus providing the materials for a typical one-semester university course.
There has been a series of OZeWAI conferences. The conference websites are mostly maintained as they were and many of the presentations have been archived:
There is now a vast amount of information about accessibility on the Web. Search engines will help you find it.
