Can I use assistive technologies to use Bill Pay?
Yes. Bill Pay follows the World Wide Web Consortium's Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA recommendations. The following features aim to make Bill Pay more accessible to assistive technology users:
Navigation. Skip to content links on each page let you skip the page banner and navigation links and go directly to the main content. Headings organize each page’s content, and a screen reader’s H key moves the focus from heading to heading. The ARIA landmark regions named banner, navigation, main, and content info let you move to defined page regions. Use the appropriate key for your screen reader. Links have detailed descriptions that can be read with a screen reader’s links list.
Regions and Tabs. Some pages have regions that expand or collapse details or forms and include the words Show or Hide in their link headings. Other areas have info presented as tabs, where the left or right arrow key changes the tab, and then you can read the tab content.
Tables and Forms. A brief description of a table’s content is read by a screen reader as you navigate a page. Table headers locate your place in the table, and links in the table headers let you sort the table content. Using the table cell keys, the column or row heading info is read as well as the table’s data. Sort links open menus to control the display order of the table’s data. The Tab key changes sort selections, and the Enter key activates your selection. Fonts can be resized with magnifier software or the browser zoom feature without significantly changing the page layout.
Accessibility Constraints. We make every effort to accommodate all users and do not wish to exclude anyone from accessing Bill Pay. One area of the product that is currently not fully accessible is the date-picking calendar. The calendars for choosing payment and transfer dates are not usable with a keyboard or screen reader. We are continuing to make improvements to all aspects of the product. Contact customer service if you have an issue using Bill Pay.
