Kelly and all,

It is quite possible that they are compliant.  The result is still the same. 
I cannot get bank of maerica to work with some browsers.  This as to do with 
the choices they make with regard to what user agents they will and will not 
let in.

David,

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.
