Bank Austria, the Austrian unit of Italian UniCredit Group, has gone live with three individual websites specifically build for the visually impaired, deaf people and those with learning difficulties.

Bank Austria called the three news websites “barrier-free” and said that each provided information on all the bank’s products and services.

Bank Austria’s traditional website now includes a “barrier-free” link that will take people to the audio website, the website which supports sign language and to the website in simple German.

Bank Austria’a CEO, Willibald Cernko claimed that the bank was the first in Austria to offer such a service.

He said:

“I personally feel it is very important to provide this access for people with disabilities. This complements our construction initiative for barrier-free branches.”
