From the website "Disability Access Bench Book - One in five Australians has a disability. People with a disability experience barriers in a range of areas including in courts and the justice system. The Disability Access Bench Book, developed by the Judicial College of Victoria in partnership with the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission, provides information and guidance for judicial officers on their role in making the Victorian court system accessible for people with disabilities. The Bench Book has a particular focus on how judicial officers can make adjustments ? including adjustments to communication and in directing hearings ? where people with a disability are complainants, defendants, witnesses or otherwise participating in hearings".
