Just a few thoughts.
Depending on your setup, lynx can work with paypal. not a bank, but an example that banks need not table lynx. The claim is always that lynx is a security risk, more so than java focused browsers...this is what the banks claim.
additionally some banks by accident  allow lynx to work via their m url.
but you must ask about this.
I say as much because the use of lynx should still be a reasonable accommodations. Java is not necessary for basic banking, and of course its use presents many issues for individuals with a number of disability experiences. I am still seeking one myself, and will do no on line banking with no accessible door. speaking of twitter for those who do it. I understand there is a very lynx friendly program ttytwitter, <spelling> that works with twitter very well indeed.

We had one in .de that worked, for years, with Lynx (Postbank);
they even won some accessibility price each year.

Now it’s an ugly, broken single-page js “app” using one of
the worse frameworks in existence.

I’d consider switching if I knew where to…

in a web2.0 world, lynx often becomes simply a testing tool

Luckily, not always. I attended an enlighting talk about ROCA
where the guy said to my cow-orkers to “listen to the lynx user,
he’s right” ;-)
