Accessibility

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

We strive to make the website 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's digital standards

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 Listen 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 Definition A condition that restricts a person's physical or mental capacity to interact in their environment. Disability can be temporary, situational or permanent. Action Plan and our obligations as a public service provider.
