What accessibility features are available in the survey?

PERTS is dedicated to providing programs that are accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. For example, Ascend, Catalyze, and Elevate surveys contain a text-to-speech option so text can be read aloud.

Once a participant has accessed the survey, they can enable the text-to-speech feature by clicking the text-to-speech button at the top of any page. Then, they can click the blue speech icons to the right of any text they want to be read out loud.

More generally, PERTS is compliant with various standards and guidelines, and we are actively working to enhance the accessibility and usability of our services.

Our programs’ compliance with accessibility standards are documented in our Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT). You can download our VPAT for Elevate, Ascend, and Catalyze below.
