Accessibility Comments

The app is totally accessible. Some screen elements are quite small so it can be a little hard to learn the layout, but flicking will overcome that problem.

VoiceOver Performance

VoiceOver reads all page elements.

Button Labeling

All buttons are clearly labeled.


The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface could be easier to navigate and use.

Other Comments

You'll need a PIN sentry device to complete registration, or you can set it up from within a branch. After registration you'll no longer need the device to log in to your account.
