Do ADA standards apply to bank websites viewed on portable devices?

Answered by: 

Question: 
There are ADA standards for websites. But are these standards applicable to websites that are viewed in portable devices (such as a cell phone or on an iPad), or are there separate standards for websites viewed on devices that aren’t computers?
Answer: 

"Mobile" accessibility is covered in existing accessibility standards/guidelines and these standards aren’t limited to our smart phones; rather, "mobile" is an umbrella term that covers a broad range of devices that people use "to interact with the web”, including portable devices such as cell phones, iPads, and even wearable devices like smart watches.
