Accessible Dataviz Talk at A11yNYC Meetup

If you’re in the New York City area, I hope you’ll come see my presentation on accessible data visualization at the @A11yNYC meetup on Thursday, June 13! This is a refinement of the talk I gave at CSUN 2019 and #a11yTo Conf 2018.

A11yNYC (Accessibility New York City) is an excellent meetup group. I’m very pleased to be speaking there, joining the ranks of other past presenters who I greatly admire. I met one of the organizers, Thomas Logan of Equal Entry, when we both spoke at a11yTo Conf, and he was gracious enough to give me a chance to speak at their meetup.

The show starts at 7pm, and it will be live captioned for the hearing impaired… if the captioner can keep up with me!

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.

Update: Video Recording

The video for my Data Verbalization presentation is now available for streaming, with captions.
