ANZ makes more than 3 million Visa debit cards accessible

Every one of 3.4 million Visa debit cards will now have tactile indicators, larger fonts, and high visibility leading edges to help customers identify their cards and which way to insert them into terminals.

The new cards work with all of ANZ’s mobile payment options, including Apple Pay, Android pay, Samsung Pay and Fitbit Pay. They also feature Visa PayWave, so customers can use contactless wherever it is accepted.

ANZ senior manager of everyday banking Steve Price said: “We know that one in five Australians lives with a disability of some sort, so it’s really important we develop products all our customers can use conveniently.

“We have a commitment to inclusive design and accessibility standards in all aspects of our product development, so the extension of these features to a further 3.4 million cards is a significant part of delivering on that.”
