As a Lloyds Bank customer, you can now use the Be My Eyes app.
This free app lets you talk to us directly and securely. You use your mobile phone camera to get live video support. We can then see and quickly help with your everyday banking needs, such as reading your statement or card number, and using our site.
Be My Eyes is free and for iOS and Android phones. It's the largest online app for people who are blind or have low-vision and covers 150 countries worldwide.
Please note: We're testing the Be My Eyes app on a trial basis. If you use the app to get help with our Mobile Banking app, we may not be able to fully assist you.
We can send you things like statements and most of our letters in:
We'll aim to send you everything in the format you choose. If you get something that isn't, give it back to us and we’ll get it transcribed for you. We are always working to fill in any gaps we may have.
We set out our branches to give you as much space as we can, and as few obstacles. We think about disability when we choose our furniture. So, you'll find comfortable seating areas, low counters and large welcome desks.
Every branch welcomes guide dogs and assistance dogs.
The keypads and screens on Lloyds Bank Cashpoint® machines (ATMs) are clear and easy to use. We use the Centre for Accessible Environments guidelines to design them.
For instance, there are raised dots on the number 5 on the keypad. This means you can feel where the numbers are if you're blind or partially sighted, or covering your hand to keep your PIN safe and private.
We’re also replacing older machines with Talking ATMs where you can plug in standard headphones. This means you can listen to instructions in private to help you with your banking. If you plug in your headphones before you put in your card, you'll hear a message that guides you to the card slot and PIN pad.
Ask anyone one of our branch team where you can find the nearest Talking ATM.
If you find it difficult to use a PIN number, we can give you a choice. You can have a chip and signature card instead. Or you can use contactless payments to buy small value items. If you have a smartphone, you might be able to make contactless payments using Apple Pay® or Google Pay.
We have different ways to help people fill in a form or sign your name. We can give you:
Just ask at the branch for what you need.

Why does my post get delivered with Articles for the Blind on it?
This is a Royal Mail service governed by the National Assistance Act 1948. It’s used to send out items free of charge if they have been designed for people who are blind or visually impaired. So, we use this service for anything we send you in large print or Braille.
If you have a hearing or speech impairment, you can also contact us by Next Generation Text (NGT) or Textphone.
