Capital One strives to make its products and services accessible for all users, including people with disabilities. In an ongoing commitment to provide outstanding customer service, Capital One offers a variety of auxiliary aids and services to ensure effective communication. If you have a request for auxiliary aids or services, please visit our Contact Us page.
Capital One continues to take steps to improve web accessibility on www.capitalone.com, as well as our other Digital properties, and align with best practices and standards as defined by Section 508 of the U.S. Rehabilitation Act and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines of the World Wide Web Consortium.
Our websites are monitored and tested regularly by internal and third party accessibility consultants to identify any usability issues as well as discover new solutions to further improve the accessibility of our site. We test our websites using a variety of adaptive technologies. Some technologies used for testing are:
- Recent versions of JAWS, VoiceOver, and NVDA
- Multiple hardware platforms - Windows, Mac, and Mobile
- Recent versions of Internet Browsers - Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox, and Chrome
- We recommend using the following web browser / screen reader combinations for an optimized experience:
- For Windows users: JAWS and Internet Explorer or NVDA and Firefox
- For Mac users: VoiceOver and Safari
- For mobile users: VoiceOver for the iPhone and TalkBack for Android devices
In order to build accessible interfaces throughout our web pages, Capital One has elected to rely on coding practices known as ARIA (Accessible Rich Internet Applications). Due to limited compatibility with older browsers such as Internet Explorer 6/7, we strongly recommend using the latest version of your web browser for the best experience. In addition to compatibility with WAI-ARIA, keeping your browser up to date is a good practice for security and overall performance.
For more information about Web Accessibility and ARIA, visit the Web Accessibility Initiative of the W3C.
