Accessibility Statement

This accessibility statement applies to the Appraisd web application (

Our view is that Appraisd (and indeed great performance management) should be accessible to as many people as possible. Furthermore, accessible design often improves usability for all users regardless of ability which is why we are happy to commit to using its principles in what we do.

In practice this means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts using browser or device settings
  • zoom in up to 400% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using a keyboard or speech recognition software
  • listen to most of the website using a screen reader (including the most recent versions of JAWS, NVDA and VoiceOver)

We’ve also made the website text as simple as possible to understand.

AbilityNet has advice on making your device easier to use if you have a disability.

Technical information about Appraisd's accessibility

Compliance status

The website has been tested against the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 AA standard by an independent third party assessor with recommendations made and implemented. The commonly used parts of the application are compliant to the WCAG 2.1 AA standard. Some areas as listed above are mostly compliant.

The areas that are not compliant are prioritised to be improved according various criteria including: utility and usage of the feature (some minor features may be removed), the feedback received from users (to date we have acted on all user feedback quickly), general roadmap priorities (for example a feature that is due for redesign may not be made compliant because it's to be re-written soon).

This application is partially compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines version 2.1 AA standard, due to some non-compliances and some exemptions due to disproportionate burden.

What we’re doing to improve accessibility

All developers are trained in the WCAG 2.1 AA accessibility standards and accessibility is considered in all feature development.

We regularly review feedback from users and incorporate suggested improvements into the application. We have links with some customers' internal accessibility teams and have regular feedback and knowledge-sharing meetings.

Preparation of this accessibility statement

This statement was prepared on 1 January 2024.

The application is tested regularly by the internal development team as part of the QA and UAT process. The application was last tested externally on 23/12/2022 against the WCAG 2.1 AA standard.

The external test was carried out by webSemantics. The most viewed pages were tested using automated testing tools by our website team.
