Please, provide an HTML rendering extension that complies with Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0.

The Dutch government requires compliance with WCAG 2.0, as part of their web guidelines: (Dutch language). Please note that contains, at this moment, an outdated version.

For now, Reporting Services cannot be the tool of choice any more for websites by Dutch governmental sites.

An extensive list of Government Accessibility Standards and WCAG 2.0 can be found at (not verified by me), which greatly increases the scope of this suggestion.

Thank you for your reply. I am currently setting up a temporary SQL Server 2012 / SSRS environment, but this takes some time, as I have to find the spare time for it.

However, I must say that I am a bit disappointed by the reply. On inspection of the current version on compliance, I could either quickly find out that it does not comply, or not find compliance issues. In the latter case, I would have to rely on my limited knowledge. I think I would only feel confident in choosing SSRS if Microsoft issued a statement about WCAG 2.0 compliance.

Thanks again for your feedback. If SQL Server 2012 does meet your requirements, please open a case with CSS (

Thank you for submitting this feedback. We are investigating the issue and will update you when we have more information. A significant number of accessibility changes have gone into the product over the past few years. Can you check to see if these fixes are present in SQL Server 2012 Reporting Services?
