Accessibility & Privacy

The Institute of Banking is working towards full compliance with the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines.

The Institute's website, iob.ie, was designed with these priorities:

  • Uses stylesheets meaning that all font sizes are relative and can be resized using the useful resizing tool (AAA) on every page.
  • Where possible, images that convey important information have alternative text. Where an image is for decorative purposes, the alternative text is left blank.
  • The great majority of downloads and documents are provided in PDF format, which can be read using Adobe's screen reader. Please visit the Access Adobe website for more information.
