Using braille text: Debit card for people with impaired vision

Close your eyes for a moment: Now how do you tell the difference between the front and back of a debit card? How do you know in which direction you need to insert the card in an ATM or a POS terminal? Exactly!

This is why Bank Austria developed the first debit card in Austria for people with impaired vision. It is particularly easy to read thanks to its extra-large font size and a stronger contrast, plus labelling in braille.

 

Debit card with braille

The debit card was developed in cooperation with the Austrian support community for the blind and visually impaired and its colour and design are precisely tailored to the needs of people with impaired vision. For people with visual impairment, switching to this special debit card is free of charge on presentation of their disability certificate showing they have impaired vision, or their membership card of the Austrian support community for the blind and visually impaired.
