Weight Watchers is using WCAG 2.0 Level AA for web and mobile app enhancements, and providing print materials in Braille, Large Print and Audio.  Weight Watchers has been a great partner in Structured Negotiations  with the ACB and blind Weight Watchers members.   Linda Dardarian, of the Oakland civil rights firm Goldstein, Borgen, Dardarian & Ho, and I represented the blind community.  

As always, questions and feedback welcomed,
