People with health conditions or impairments still face too many barriers online. Improving the accessibility of our website and Banking app is an ongoing priority for us.
We want all our members — whatever their needs or situation — to find our online services easy to use.
Some of the ways we’re doing that include:
- making sure our website and app meet the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level AA standard
- testing our online services with our users, so they work as well as they possibly can
- making sure our website and Banking app works with commonly used assistive technologies, including speech recognition tools, screen readers and screen magnifiers.
How we're checking we're meeting the standards
We’re committed to making sure our new website can be used by everyone. And we mean everyone. That’s why we’re aiming to meet recognised standards for accessibility: Level AA of the WCAG.
We’ve asked the Digital Accessibility Centre (DAC) (opens in new window) to help us do this. So, in July, they'll carry out a 'WCAG 2.1 Level AA accessibility audit'. This will include testing by people with a wide range of disabilities.
