The State Bank of Alcester is committed to making its electronic and information technologies accessible to individuals with disabilities.
What We’ve Done to Improve Access
- Responsive site. Our user friendly responsive design ensures that our websites stretch to fill the space available to you, meaning that no matter what your browser window size or screen resolution, the website adapts itself to the space available. This means there is less horizontal scrolling at small resolutions, and should make the site easier to browse with a screen magnifier.
- Adding text to our images. Our website includes images. However, if there is no text to identify the image, a screen reader could not identify the image. The user would not have any way of knowing if the image is a logo, link to another page or simply a stock photo. Therefore, we try to use alt tags on our images to identify our images.
- Providing closed captioning. On the videos in our Online Education Center, we provide closed captioning services for those who are hearing impaired (as well as visitors without speakers or headphones).
What We’re Still Working on to Improve Access
While we strive to adhere to the accepted guidelines and standards for accessibility and usability, it is not always possible to do so in all areas of our online presence. To provide additional services and access to your accounts, we partner with a variety of third-parties to offer services such as Internet Banking, Mobile Banking, Bill Pay and more. Not all of our third-parties have the capabilities yet to provide accessible sites and information for individuals with disabilities.
While we’re working to ensure this site’s accessibility, you may find some limitations. If you require assistance or wish to report an issue related to the accessibility of any content on this website, please email email@example.com. If applicable, please include the web address or URL and the specific problems you have encountered. You may also call the bank at (605) 934-2500.
We encourage you to request a reasonable accommodation or the information in an alternative format if you are unable or limited in your ability to use or access our website. Accommodation requests can be made by calling the bank at (605) 934-2500 or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. All constructive feedback regarding the accessibility or usability of this website is welcome and will be carefully considered.

Accessing Adobe Acrobat PDF Files
Many of the pages on our website site are in HTML formats. These formats are generally accessible to people who use screen readers.
We do, however, have a large number of documents in Adobe Acrobat® Portable Document Format (PDF). PDF format is used to make it easier for website visitors to print information about products and services. Most of the information found on the PDFs is also available within the HTML content. Publications in PDF can be viewed and printed using the most up-to-date Adobe Acrobat Reader®. You can download and get help using the Acrobat Reader at the Adobe Systems, Inc. site. The downloadable Acrobat Reader software is available for free from Adobe.
People using screen-reading devices may be unable to read documents directly in PDF format. Having an accessibility plug-in installed on their system along with the Adobe Acrobat Reader may help. This plug-in is available for free from Adobe. Adobe also has online tools that will convert PDF files to HTML on request. To get the plug-in and latest news about Adobe’s accessibility tools and services, please visit the Access Adobe site.
