Halifax becomes first UK organisation to have all of its digital channels accredited by AbilityNet
Recent press release from Halifax announces that they have become the first business in the UK to have their website and mobile app simultaneously accredited by accessibility specialists AbilityNet.
AbilityNet works with organisations to ensure their digital content is accessible by the 13 million people in the UK with a disability – those who may have sight, literacy or other needs which make it more difficult for them to access online content.
Nick Williams, Managing Director of Consumer Digital at Halifax said: “We’re extremely proud to become the first UK organisation to have all of its digital channels accredited by AbilityNet. This is an ongoing process and is a great example of how we are not only providing straightforward and accessible online banking for everyone, but also supporting our wider commitment to helping Britain prosper.”
Nigel Lewis, CEO of AbilityNet said: “It’s great to see Halifax leading the way on building accessibility into their website and mobile app. More and more disabled users tell us they are using mobile devices, so it’s vitally important that customer-oriented business take a multi-channel approach to digital inclusion.”
