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, and tips and best practices for making complex
graphical content available to all. We'll also offer a direct comparison
on different tools and software that make it easy to 'accessibilify' your
diagrams.
