Novartis were keen to ensure their digital platforms were accessible and that they meet WCAG 2.1 standards. They engaged with IA Labs to audit their AMD.ie website. It was from this audit that Novartis decided to rebuild this site with the WCAG 2.1 standards “baked in” and build accessibility in to the core of the project.
IA Labs provide Accessible PDF Training to a number of Novartis Ireland Staff as this was something we identified in our accessibility consultation.
IA Labs have been collaborating with Novartis on a number of current projects and are dedicated to accompanying Novartis on their journey to universal accessibility.
