Cate Blanchett has given her voice to play an online character who will give people information about the national disability insurance scheme.
Oscar winning actress Cate Blanchett has injected some Hollywood stardom into the national disability insurance scheme.
Blanchett has taken on the voice role of Nadia, an online virtual assistant who can speak, write and chat online while answering common questions about the NDIS
"I have disability very close to me in my family," Blanchett said in a promotional video, when asked why she took on the role.
The avatar character has been co-designed with people with disabilities.
Nadia already understands thousands of questions and her knowledge bank will grow with more interactions.
Nadia will start on a trial basis on the NDIS's participant portal website in coming months and it's expected to take 12 months before she's fully operational.
