IDB Bank® is continually working to make its web content and resources accessible as part of its online inclusion efforts. We are actively working to improve the accessibility and usability of our website and adhere to many of the available standards and guidelines.
We are committed to providing a website that:
- features Assistive Technology for individuals who have trouble typing, gesturing, moving a mouse or reading; and
- is built with accessibility in mind so that no one with a disability is left behind
Our goal is to ensure that everyone has access to information on our website and can fully interact without barriers. We are currently working on www.idbny.com to identify potential accessibility issues and ensure that we are striving to improve the usability of the site for people of all abilities. IDB Bank has partnered with eSSENTIAL Accessibility, a third party digital accessibility and assistive technology testing vendor, to assist IDB Bank in adopting and implementing procedures to the relevant portions of the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C’s) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 Level A and AA as its web accessibility standard for its Websites and continues to make such compliance of its Websites a key focus of its software development and design efforts.
IDB Bank is committed to upholding its legal obligations to Title III of the ADA, and the Department of Justice (DOJ) web accessibility directives. Measures have been taken to ensure that we follow best practices as put forth by the W3C’s WCAG 2.1 Level A & AA.
Through our partner, eSSENTIAL Accessibility, we are able to offer a free Assistive Technology Application for users who have trouble typing, gesturing, moving a mouse or reading online content. This application incorporates tools such as mouse and keyboard replacements, voice recognition, speech enablement, hands-free/touch-free navigation and more that empowers users to overcome their challenges and access our website with ease.
