We have published a new document called Creating Accessible Reports Using SAS Visual Analytics 7.4, which is written for report designers who want to create reports that comply with the Web Content Accessibility (WCAG) 2.0 Level AA guidelines.   


The document is the result of a joint effort between the SAS Accessibility and SAS Visual Analytics doc teams.  It's available from the 7.4 tab on the SAS Visual Analytics doc page:


The guidelines generally apply to the SAS Visual Analytics 8.x releases on SAS Viya, but we focused on 7.4 since that's the release many of you are using.

Do you know of ANY samples of an accessible visualization from SAS VIYA meeting WCAG 2.0 Level AA?

Hello open,


The Capital Campaign report that ships with the Visual Analytics App is an example of an accessible report.


Are you looking for a sample that you can open in the VA report designer interface?

Thanks for quick reply Sam.


We're using SAS Viya product, specifically for the Visualization builder.


As you see in the original post here, Joy mentions Viya... but I'm confused on the relation with "SAS Visual Analytics 8.x releases on SAS Viya". I see this:


But hoping to find better use cases, documentation and/or github sample codebases on something complying to WCAG 2.0 Level AA.

Generally speaking, many of the principles in the "Creating Accessible Reports" document apply to Viya (Visual Analytics 8.1+) as well as VA 7.4. We are planning an update to this document that will specifically cover Viya Visual Analytics.
