    Hello,

    I am searching for ways of implementing reports properly with accordance to WCAG 2.0 in WPF projekt.

    Is there any way to programmatically tag items in report, add natural language and other metadata?

    Hello Jakub,

    Telerik Reporting aims to provide a reporting solution accessible to a wider user audience. This includes users with motor control restrictions and ones working with assistive technologies. In our product, we follow the recommended practices in Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act adding accessibility features to our WPF report viewer.

    The accessibility features are enabled or disabled using a Boolean dependency property named EnableAccessibility. When the property is set to true, the XAML renderer produces enriched markup for the report content and the report viewer controls’ behavior is changed so they respond differently to the user’s input. For more information on how to set up accessibility features in WPF viewer, please check Accessibility help article. In the article are also listed the supported accessibility features in WPF report viewer and in report contents.

    Based on the screenshot I assume that you are referring to PDF documents accessibility features. In R2 2019 release we introduced the PDF accessibility feature. You can check the relevant documentation section here. There is also a blog post on the subject: Create Accessible PDF Documents with Telerik Reporting. Since this version, PDFs are fully enabled to generate documents that cover all the applicable accessibility standards.

    Best Regards,
    Silviya
