Any of our users may be experiencing these common barriers to access:
Adding descriptive text for images is the first principle of digital accessibility.
Every image, whether a photograph, illustration, chart or graph, must include a text description either tagged to the item or placed near it.
Other accessibility aids include a systematic approach to navigation, visual contrast between elements, and the ability for users to control appearance and functionality where appropriate.
As accessibility is a team effort, we comply with the World Wide Web Consortium’s (W3C’s) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.1, level AA, and First Republic Corporate Policy.
Adopting these standards allows us to offer accessibility across all digital touchpoints and platforms and demonstrates our continued commitment to providing the highest level of service.
Please create with our guidelines in mind. Visit this site on your desktop for more accessibility guidelines.
Accessibility should enable a range of users to appreciate and understand all content, regardless of how it is presented.
