The topic of accessibility is of high relevance for banks, but concentrates primarily on the good accessibility of the branches. Deutsche Bank, for example, writes on its website: "Accessibility, customer satisfaction, responsible business and secure banking are very important to us. After all, 487 of its 734 branches in Germany are barrier-free and online banking should also be completely barrier-free. However, PDF files are not displayed to be barrier-free.

The German Savings Banks and Giro Association has launched the "Accessible Banking Services" project and offers corresponding solutions with which branches can design their PDFs barrier-free. Sparkasse Dachau, for example, offers PDF/UA-compliant documents.
The goal of banks should be that all information should also be accessible by people who use special tools - such as screen readers, special mouse or voice output and input. The ISO-certified PDF/UA format (Universal Accessibility) can help to ensure that the documents and forms offered on the Internet are barrier-free.
