Search tips

If you enter two or more words in the search field, the search results will include matches for any of those words.

To optimise the search results, you can use the following operators in the search field:

  • Surround a phrase with double quotes (") to search for the whole phrase.
  • Prefix a word with + if all search results must include the word.
  • Prefix a word with - if the search results must not include the word.

Examples:

  • one two
    Search for either one or two.
  • "one two"
    Search for the whole phrase "one two" rather than the individual words one or two.
  • +one two
    All search results must include one, and will rank higher if they also contain two.
  • +one -two
    All search results must include one, but none will include two.

    Webinar: New and under-used strategies for accessible graphics in higher education

    This webinar was hosted by ADCET and the Australian Tertiary Education Network on Disability (ATEND) in March, 2017. The presenter was Leona Holloway. 

    As part of a two year project, Leona Holloway and her project team worked closely with vision impaired students in higher education, disability advisors, academics and accessible formats producers. They found evidence that vision impaired students are missing out on important information conveyed in graphics and that this is affecting their education experience and their choice of study and career paths. Through a series of pilot studies, they explored a wide range of strategies to improve this situation, with a strong focus on practical implementation. In this webinar, they will draw from their findings to offer insight on:

    • identifying which graphics need to be made accessible
    • new technologies that students can use to gain independent access to graphics
    • choosing the most suitable techniques and technologies to make graphics accessible
    • resources to help implement solutions
