Hello my name is ***** ***** I am happy to help you today. Has the company who has engaged you asked for it to be accessible in this way?
No but I feel it is my responsibility to let them know if it is a legal requirement.
will the application be used by members of the public?
Ok thank you that clarifies matters. If the application is only for the use of employees then it is not a legal requirement that it is accessible as the obligations under the Equality Act to ensure that it is accessible are only for services to the public. However, if the employer employs a disabled employer it may need to make reasonable adjustments to assist that employee, with specific needs, to use an application. If this occurs modifications may need to be made. It may be worth mentioning this to the person engaging you to do this. Particularly if you can easily address any future accessibility issues.
If you have any further questions please do ask.
If I have answered your question please do take the time to rate my answer. Thank you and all the best.
Thank you for your help.
Please can I confirm with you for my future reference. Would the same answer apply if the in-house computer application was to be used inside a public sector body rather than inside a private company? I assume it would if the application isn't to be used by the public?
Please let me know if I need to submit another question from the start.
