Yes and it can be done right from your banks app if they have the option like Ally Bank does.

I've used Ally Bank for ten years and they are very accessible. In years past, when I had an accessibility issue they even gave me the direct line phone number for Tier 2 (one step above regular tech support. I haven't had to contact them lately though because I haven't had any accessibility issues. I use their iPhone app mostly and don't really have any reason to use the website on a computer. They are also affiliated with Zell (not all banks are) so if I need to send/receive money to someone that is an option besides Pay Pal.

I forgot to mention they do not charge fees for ATM withdrawals (in the past they would reimburse any fees you were charged up to I believe 5 withdrawal fees per month) and the checking and savings are both interest bearing accounts.

I have used nothing but these for the longest time, from the early

branchless bank I had used, until they merged with BBVA, who is in

BBVA's app isn't so great with Voiceover on the phone. Ally bank is
another one I've tried, and although it wasn't the greatest years ago,
they have decent accessibility now. Their only down side is that they
don't really have deposit or withdrawal notifications on the phone app
like Simple did. I thought about trying something like Chime, but not
sure how accessible they are. They appear to have a better ATM network
in that there are machines closer to where I go than some of the
others have.

Has anyone here used a branchless bank before?

If so how accessible are these kinds of banks on android, iOS and Windows?

Thanks,
