The following tips are designed to provide help with navigating through our website.
Some people like to zoom into the screen or web browser in order to see things better. Here are a few ways of doing it depending on your setup:
Another trick is to use "Ctrl" ("Cmd" on Mac) plus the plus (+) or minus (-) keys when you're in a web browser.
Some people like to change colors or fonts to see words more clearly. Most major web browsers have options to do this:
In Chrome, go to "Preferences," activate the "Show advanced settings" link, go to the "Web content" heading and change the "Font size, Customize fonts" in other ways, or set default "Page zoom."
We recommend a mixture of settings like enlarging font size and zooming into the browser for a better experience.
Screen readers are types of text-to-speech software that allow people to read and interact with content in different ways. Many people who cannot perceive what is on the screen will use them to allow audible access to web content. Citizens National Bank designs and codes for accessibility. We strive to ensure that our content is accessible to screen readers.
There are free options available including NVDA for Windows and VoiceOver for Mac. What we recommend is JAWS for Windows. You can use this with your favorite web browser.
Screen readers accept input in a variety of ways, but one of the most common forms is through your keyboard. By pressing the down arrow in JAWS, for example, you are able navigate through items on the page. JAWS will also accept Braille input.
There are a lot of great features right on your smart phone. Both iOS and Android provide many tools to help you access what you need. For example:
VoiceOver for iOS and TalkBack for Android are the screen readers that come built-in. To turn on VoiceOver, go to "Settings," then "General," to "Accessibility," and then turn "VoiceOver" on. You can set the “Accessibility Shortcut” to “VoiceOver” from the "Accessibility" page in order to triple-click the "Home" button to toggle VoiceOver on and off. TalkBack has a similar feature.
"Zoom, Magnifier, Invert Colors, Color Filters," and "Reduce White Point" are other features and tools on iOS that you can use. These are also available through the “Accessibility Shortcut.”
