**I wouldn't necessarily say so.  nearly all of the talking ATM's are with 
big banks.  ditto for free bill pay.  the same is true for banking 
information in Braille or on audio cassette.  also, automated telephone 
information lines popular with the blind and others with disabilities, such 
as those with speech impairments, are usually found at the big banks.  Small 
banks may be virtuous to some, but the biggies have enormous resources and 
economies of scale that make these services possible.
