American Council of the Blind

Fitness and exercise just became more accessible with the introduction of the Google Talkback screen reader on the Peloton Tread!

The American Council of the Blind is proud to have collaborated with Peloton to establish the new Tread accessibility features. ACB is working to shine a spotlight on the inaccessibility and inequities of all aspects of health and wellness, like at-home COVID testing, patient portals and telehealth, or exercise and fitness equipment. We are thankful for the collaboration of partners, like Peloton, who recognize accessibility is an opportunity to grow their community and enhance the lives of people with disabilities. You can learn more about how TalkBack on Tread works by visiting: []{.underline}.

The work of ACB's Get Up and Get Moving Campaign continues! Find out more information about our Get Up and Get Moving Campaign by visiting: []{.underline}.
