No Longer a Matter of If: Why Digital Accessibility is The Path Forward

We're experiencing a world-wide demographics shift towards disability. Between an aging Baby Boom generation and a younger population in which disability will become a growing factor, this is an inescapable fact. Websites and mobile environments can foster inclusion and offer accessibility for those of us living with disabilities. They are also a legal requirement which can make, or break, the success of a financial institution.

An accessible website and banking systems will become crucial to staying in business. This session will conclude with:

  • How to “bake” accessibility into your financial website and mobile design planning and updating processes
  • Key attributes of accessible digital design and structure
  • Ways to ensure that your digital content is truly accessible
  • Special considerations for financial customers who live with disabilities
