Accessibility statement for open data applications: Price Paid Data (PPD) explorer, standard reports builder and UK House Price Index (UKHPI)

This website is run by HM Land Registry. We want as many people as possible to be able to use this website. For example, that means you should be able to:

  • change colours, contrast levels and fonts
  • zoom in up to 200% without the text spilling off the screen
  • navigate most of the website using just a keyboard
  • navigate most of the website using 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.

How accessible this website is

We believe that most of this website is compliant with the requirements of Web Contents Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 AA standard. The PPD explorer, standard reports builder, and UKHPI should not present any obstacles to users with disabilities. If you do find problems accessing these sections, please let us know.

We know that the SPARQL Qonsole on this website is not fully accessible. In particular, we note the following issues:

  • Background and foreground colours do not have sufficient contrast ratio
    This fails WCAG 1.4.3 Contrast (Level AA)
    Compatibility work to be completed by end of calendar year 2020
  • Some input fields do not have associated labels in HTML
    This fails WCAG 3.3.2 Labels or Instructions (Level A)
    Compatibility work to be completed by end of calendar year 2020
  • Lists do not contain only `li` elements and script supporting elements (`script and `template`)
    This fails WCAG 4.1.2 Name, Role, Value (Level A)
    Compatibility work to be completed by end of calendar year 2020
  • User cannot progress past main text area using tab key alone
    This fails WCAG 2.1.2 No Keyboard Trap
    Compatibility work to be completed by end of calendar year 2020

We are working on an update to the SPARQL Qonsole to resolve these issues and make the SPARQL Qonsole WCAG 2.1 compliant. We expect this update to be completed by the end of December 2020.
