Designing Accessible Data Visualizations: 10 Quick Wins
Led by the Washington Evaluators, August 25, 3:00-4:00pm
Accessibility doesn’t need to take all day. And accessibility shouldn’t just be a box-checking exercise to satisfy paperwork requirements.
Ann K. Emery will share 10 quick wins for designing accessible data visualizations. These small edits can have a big impact for our coworkers, board members, and funders who have color vision deficiencies, hearing loss, or learning disabilities--and for all of us who are pressed for time.
For example, you’ll learn how to choose graph colors that are legible for people with color vision deficiencies (1 in 12 men that we work with). You’ll also learn why we’ve got to start removing legends (and what to do instead) and which software settings to avoid because they aren't accessible.
After we cover these 10 quick wins, we’ll practice revamping a graph together. You're welcome to submit your graphs or dashboards ahead of time for inclusion in the session! Just get in touch with the presenter at Hello@DepictDataStudio.com.
This event is open to all Washington Evaluators members.
