New: Non-Visual Digital Maps

Maps are inherently visual. Does that mean people with visual impairments or blindness are out of luck if they need to understand geospatial data? Not anymore.

SAS Graphics Accelerator now supports non-visual access to digital maps using spatial audio, a standard computer keyboard, and a video game controller. This new technology enables people with visual impairments or blindness to perceive maps in a way that simply was not possible a few months ago. We're also thrilled to share that our friends at Perkins School for the Blind created a crowd-sourced library of non-visual digital maps. Check it out and let us know what you think.

Demonstrations

The SAS accessibility YouTube playlist contains short demonstrations of SAS accessibility features. Here's a few recent additions that may be of interest:

Webinars

SAS accessibility webinars are designed to teach you a specific skill that you can use immediately. We recognize that making data accessible requires effort from people in different roles. Those roles may include people with disabilities, accessibility compliance officers, disability support staff in higher education, or people that need to publish quantitative information. The primary audience of a webinar may focus on a specific role, but everyone is always welcome.

Samples

As you can tell from the demonstration videos above, SAS products enable people with disabilities to access data like never before. However, sometimes you need to experience new technology yourself. That's why we created the SAS Accessibility Gallery. Check out the samples and let us know what you think.
