Is this one of the papers you've referenced? It was presented at this year's SAS Global Forum, and has 40 pages with plenty of examples and several useful references.

A number of accessibility enhancements are coming in SAS 9.4 maint 4, to be released very soon (in the next week or so).  You'll want to stay tuned to that -- we'll post links when the documentation is publically available.


You'll see many accessibility enhancements in SAS Studio and SAS Enterprise Guide as well as the ability to programmatically create accessible graphs, tables, and other content with the Output Delivery System's HTML5 destination.
