1st National Bank of Scotia works hard to make sure that everyone who wants to use 1st National Bank of Scotia’s online website can do so, and have a positive experience. We do this in various ways, including:

  1. Making links on our website descriptive and providing alternative text to help people using assistive technology such as screen reader software.
  2. We consider accessibility when we design features or pages on our website.
  3. We increase the contrast between fonts and backgrounds to make pages on our website easier to read.
  4. We make our website easier to navigate without using a mouse.
