Banif with Text-to-Speech navigation mode

Banif with Text-to-Speech navigation mode

Banco Internacional do Funchal (Banif) has made available on its website a navigation feature that allows the blind and illiterate to access the financial products and services offered online, as well as consult information.

When accessing the site, the user can hear a welcome audio message and a brief explanation of how to use the Text-to-Speech functionality.

Initially, the combination «Alt + 1» is used on the keyboard and, from there, the commands are entered with just three keys: «left arrow», «right arrow» and «space bar», explains a statement.

Developed in partnership with the Associação Promotora do Ensino dos Cegos (APEC), the initiative aims to combat info-exclusion and promote the full integration of visually impaired people into society.
