Panopto’s VPAT

A Voluntary Product Accessibility Template (VPAT) is a document evaluating the accessibility of products according to modern standards and regulations.

Panopto’s VPAT v2.4, released in December of 2022, was created to evaluate the Panopto platform under the WCAG 2.1 AA regulations and Section 508 standards.

We are committed to accessible learning, design, and updates that build a more equitable future of working and learning across diverse workforces and learning institutions.
