Pioneering Inclusive Digital Experiences

Our digital commitment extends beyond mere compliance— we've strategically planned and consulted with experts to develop robust Digital Accessibility strategic plans. Through Digital Accessibility Audits, Assistive Software Catalogue development, and the implementation of WCAG & PDF/UA in key global platform launches, we're actively aligning our digital presence with inclusivity. As we look ahead, our 2024 roadmap underscores our enduring commitment to advancing digital accessibility.

In line with this vision, we are dedicated to enhancing the overall Sanofi design system's accessibility. This involves the addition of new features and elements that adhere to the latest industry and Sanofi accessibility standards. Collaborating with a specialized digital accessibility vendor, we are poised to launch a global digital accessibility standard, further solidifying our commitment to making our digital platforms inclusive and accessible to all.

Sanofi's digital advancements empower me. O365 reads documents aloud, Zoom bridges distances, and videos eliminate the need to read. It's a game-changer!
