Are you saying that the Bank of America does not comply with priorities One 
and two of the Web Content Accessibility guidelines, version 1.0?  A few 
years ago it entered into a legal settlement agreeing to fully comply with 
WCAG.  either it isn't doing so or the guidelines are inadequate.  Another 
bank in the mid-Atlantic area where you live that entered into a similar 
agreement was Wachovia.

I have had little contact with Bank of America.  I live in the only region 
of the country (the upper Midwest) that the bank hasn't fully entered.  in 
the last year, they have opened up a few branches here in Chicago but these 
don't have talking ATM's.  It's ironic considering that the bank has several 
thousand people based in Chicago, including a number of web developers.
