Site Launch: Alcon Laboratories

Posted in Accessibility, News, Web Standards

Screen Shot of the Alcon Laboratories WebsiteI’m very excited to announce the launch of one of my favorite projects of the last few years. It’s the corporate site for Alcon Laboratories, an ophthalmology company based in Ft. Worth, Texas. We’ve been working on this site for quite some time and it came out looking and functioning great. The client was completely on board with the idea of making the site highly accessible. So everything we did, from the architecture and visual design to the front- and back-end programming, had accessibility in mind. This was the first major XML/XSLT project for me. It was a nice change of pace that posed more than a few fun challenges along the way. Take a look at the original template or the live site and let me know what you think. I’m especially interested to hear what you think about the accessibility features we used throughout. What do you thinkā€”is it as accessible as it can be?
