We Value Digital Inclusion

In our effort to provide a fully accessible and optimized user experience for all site visitors, United Bay Community Credit Union has taken careful measure to ensure an excellent user experience, regardless of assistive technology being used to access this site or the specific abilities of those individuals seeking access to this site.

The United Bay Community Credit Union website is monitored and tested regularly by internal resources and by AudioEye, a third-party provider of Web Accessibility testing and monitoring.

As new solutions are discovered to improve the user experience, remediation is tracked through the AudioEye system and fixes are implemented to improve the website user experience.
