Credit Union Website Accessibility

Let’s make your site work for everyone.

By now, you’ve heard that the ADA website accessibility rule for public accommodations (including all credit unions) is on the way. Although the rule has been delayed several times, there are indications that the courts expect business sites to be accessible to assistive technology users now, in advance of the rule change. There are several recent high-profile lawsuits testing that compliance.

While the legal aspect is important, it’s not the main reason to care about the accessibility of your credit union’s website. Making your site conform to accessibility standards means that the widest range of people— your members, prospective members, and guests— will be able to successfully read, interact, and have a good experience with your credit union’s site. That’s why we think credit union website accessibility is so important.

To help you navigate the details surrounding website accessibility, we’ve written a white paper on the topic. You’ve probably already put some accessibility practices in place, but most credit unions will find they need to take it to a higher level.

Please help yourself to a copy of “L9 and Website Accessibility for Credit Unions.”

Our Website Accessibility Status

(updated March 28, 2016)

Our L9.com site was originally built with above-average accessibility, but wasn’t built to conform strictly to particular accessibility standards. We’ve found on L9.com— as you'll likely find on your site— that some elements do not meet WAI-WCAG 2.0 guidelines and we’re working to fix that. We encourage you to start the process now and take steps to bring your credit union site up to Level AA conformance.

L9 can help. Please review our white paper and get in touch for more details.

L9.com accessibility

  • Level A — 2 form, 1 link, and 3 image fixes pending.
  • Level AA — 1 CSS, 1 heading, and 2 color/font fixes pending.
