ANZ issues debit cards for vision impaired customers
ANZ today became the first major Australian bank to introduce accessible features to debit cards, to help make everyday banking easier, particularly for customers with low vision. ANZ Access cards will now have a larger font and tactile indicators to help customers orientate and identify cards, as well as high visibility leading edges which help with identifying the correct way to insert cards into ATMs and EFTPOS terminals.
ANZ General Manager Deposits and Payments Kath Bray said: “Introducing new accessible features to our ANZ Access cards is part of our commitment to incorporate universal design and accessibility standards into all aspects of product development.
