Supporting Website Accessibility

Last modified: 07 April 2011

The Canadian Bankers Association is committed to supporting website accessibility for individuals with physical disabilities. Many individuals have trouble typing, moving a mouse or reading a web page and would have trouble accessing a website without assistive technology.

eSSENTIAL Accessibility™

We have partnered with eSSENTIAL Accessibility™ to provide software that can be easily downloaded to a computer to assist individuals in accessing information on the Internet.

By clicking on this icon, visitors are redirected to www.essentialaccessibility.com where the application is available free of charge.

The application features a number of keyboard and mouse replacement options that allow users to overcome any physical limitation to access the CBA website. The software benefits individuals with dexterity limitations that arise from a variety of conditions including:

  • stroke/paralysis
  • arthritis
  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Cerebral Palsy (CP)
  • age-related factors

It also helps those who have difficulty reading because of:

  • literacy deficiencies
  • limited English proficiency
  • dyslexia or similar learning issues
  • mild visual impairment

Through its support of eSSENTIAL Accessibility™ and the installation of visual-aids such as the text-sizer on every page, the Association maintains an ongoing commitment to ensuring the CBA website is accessible to everyone.
