Web chat accessibility testing Oracle products are tested for accessibility using a variety of techniques including automated tools, expert heuristic review, visual inspection, manual operation, and testing with various AT by both disabled and non-disabled users. We report the outcome of that testing using the Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT). The VPAT was developed by ITI and GSA to assist Federal contracting officials and other buyers in making preliminary assessments regarding the availability of commercial ICT products and services with features that support accessibility. See Voluntary Product Accessibility Templates for an in-depth discussion of how we use the VPAT, and to locate the VPATs for Oracle products.
