SAS Graphics Accelerator Tutorial #1: How to

The Accelerator makes digital charts and graphs accessible! Learn more about accessibility options here.

Hi, my name is Esteban and I’m currently a senior in high school. Over the summer, I attended a STEM camp for the blind and visually impaired in North Carolina. One of our activities was to visit SAS and learn how to use SAS Graphics Accelerator, a widget available on the chrome app store that allows the blind and visually impaired to “read” graphs. We even had the opportunity to provide feedback, which has been included in a recent update of the Accelerator. This is the first video in a tutorial series on how to use SAS Graphics Accelerator, explaining how to read graphs. Watch the next video to find out how to customize the Accelerator to your preferences. 

The video below demonstrates how to use the Accelerator.
