EVENT DETAILS

Data visualization doesn't have to be visual! Don't assume that a chart
or diagram can't be made accessible. In this talk, you'll learn how the
brain processes data visualizations, how we can leverage this to work
with other senses, & tips & best practices for making complex
graphical content available to all. We'll also offer a direct comparison
on different tools & software that make it easy to 'accessibilify' your
diagrams.
