Chicago - Weight Watchers International, Inc. (NYSE: WTW) today announced its ongoing initiative to make its websites, mobile applications and print information more accessible.
Weight Watchers has adopted the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) version 2.0 level AA as its accessibility standard for both web and mobile applications, and has already made substantial enhancements to its websites to meet this standard. Weight Watchers has also strengthened its system for providing Braille, Large Print, and Audio versions of print information to members with visual impairments.
“Ensuring a high level of engagement and convenience for consumers is extremely important to us,” said Catherine Ulrich, Senior Vice President of WeightWatchers.com. “From product development to the work of our dedicated Service Providers in meetings rooms, we are committed to supporting all of our members and online subscribers in their weight loss journeys. We hope that our accessibility efforts empower those with visual impairments to better manage their food environment and establish daily routines that can become long-term healthy habits.”
Weight Watchers worked with the American Council of the Blind and Weight Watchers members and subscribers with vision loss on its accessibility initiative
Weight Watchers has already begun making accessibility improvements, and will continue doing so in the future. Information about the initiative can be found on the Accessibility Information Page on the Weight Watchers website
