Accessibility

We are constantly updating the VCAT website to make sure the widest possible audience, including readers using assistive technology or accessibility features can find the information they need.

Our aim is for the site to be accessible in line with W3C's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 at Level AA. 

We will continue to monitor and improve the site's compliance with these standards and the Victorian Government Websites Principles and Requirements.

ReadSpeaker control that appears on each page.To further improve accessibility, we have installed text-to-voice technology that enables you to have each page read aloud. To activate this feature, click the icon on top of each page. Allow a few seconds for it to load.

We have also provided some general information about VCAT in a selection of languages. These pages can be read aloud in the language of the text (except Farsi and Vietnamese, as our text-to-voice technology does not currently have language codes for these).

VCAT has a range of supports for people with disabilities and is in the process of reviewing these supports to inform the development of an Accessibility Plan, in line with the state's Disability Action Plan and our obligations as a public service provider.
