Dear colleagues:

Today Safeway announced its web accessibility program.  Safeway worked on this initiative with the blind community through the Structured Negotiations process.  The company will be using WCAG 2.0 Level AA as its accessibility standard, and when the standard is met the company will be removing a separate text-based "Access Site" that it has used for many years. 

Links to the press release and full settlement agreement are below.  Linda Dardarian and I represented the blind Safeway shoppers, and, as always, feedback welcomed.
