Dyslexia and Dyscalculia


You can change the colour of our websites to help make the text clearer to read.

You can also use text-to-speech software and reading aids such as TextHelpRead&Write or ClaroRead.


We can provide letters in different formats to suit your needs. Just call us or ask at a branch and our colleagues will arrange this for you.

Choose from:

  • large print
  • coloured paper
  • audio CD.

We usually send coloured paper letters on yellow paper. But we can provide different colours. If you get something that’s not on the paper you need, just let us know and we’ll send it again on something more suitable for you.

Debit and credit cards

If it's difficult for you to use a PIN number, we can give you a choice.

  • You can have a chip-and-signature card
  • You can use a contactless card to buy some things
  • You can use a smartphone for contactless payments, using Apple Pay® or Google Pay.

In branch

To help you read documents in branch, we can provide colour acetate sheets to make the text clearer. Just ask a colleague.

Halifax cash machines

You can select the audio function on a Halifax ATM to have what's on the screen read out to you.

The keypads and screens on our cash machines (ATMs) are also clear and easy to use. We use the Centre for Accessible Environments guidelines to design them.

Talking ATMs

We're also putting in Talking ATMs as we replace older cash machines. With a Talking ATM you can plug in your headphones and hear what’s on the screen being read out for you.

Ask a branch colleague or call us to find your nearest Talking ATM.
