SAS The Power to Know

SAS® Visual Analytics SDK

Accessibility Conformance Report

The SAS® Visual Analytics SDK (Software Development Kit) is a collection of JavaScript libraries that you can use to embed SAS Visual Analytics insights within your web pages and web apps. The SAS Visual Analytics SDK enables you to embed entire SAS Visual Analytics reports, embed individual SAS Visual Analytics objects from one or more reports, perform interactions between multiple SAS Visual Analytics objects, and share data and actions between SAS Visual Analytics objects and JavaScript controls (by using data-driven content).

This VPAT was prepared using Visual Analytics SDK version 0.20.0.

This VPAT covers the accessibility of report content presented using the Visual Analytics SDK when an entire report is shown. The accessibility of report content might vary when individual report pages or objects are displayed in a page containing other content.

Where criteria are listed below as supported, this means that report authors can create report content that meets the criterion by following the guidelines for creating accessible reports using SAS Visual Analytics. Otherwise, the criterion is listed as partially supported or not supported.

In order to meet WCAG 1.4.1 Use of Color, pages that display full or partial reports using the Visual Analytics SDK should offer users a way to view those reports with the high contrast theme enabled. The Visual Analytics SDK offers an API for enabling the high contrast theme when displaying a full or partial report. It is not necessary for authors to save a copy of the report using the high contrast theme.
