Mobile banking for people with visual impairments

As one of the first in the Nordic countries, SDC now offers their customers a mobile bank that is easy to use for blind and partially sighted people.
The new version of the mobile bank, which just has been launched, takes advantage of the voice, larger font and increased contrast, which is built into the Accessibility features on iOS and Android by default.

This way, we can serve the blind and partially sighted people and users with ordinary sight. If the Accessibility feature on the Smartphone is off, the mobile bank will look as it usually does.

The development has been conducted in close cooperation with the Danish Institute for Blind and partially sighted and follows the International Accessibility guidelines, WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines).

In Norway, it is already a legal requirement that banks comply with WCAG 2.0, and in the EU, efforts are being made to establish common European rules in form of ”The European Accessibility Act”.
