Thanks, Shawn. I did see that and there are some great ideas in that thread.

Since so many universities are now using this software, I thought perhaps there might be some actual examples of how they’re managing to provide the data in an accessible way, despite the inaccessibility of the product.

Appreciate the thoughts.

There's an interesting (older) discussion about Tableau on WebAIM's listserv archive: http://webaim.org/discussion/mail_thread?thread=6065, including some ways of thinking about how to present the data in different - and accessible - ways.

Hi Everyone,

We're among the many schools about to begin using Tableau data visualization<http://www.tableau.com/> software, both internally and externally, on our websites.

I'm wondering if those of you who are already using Tableau would be willing to share whether you have found ways to make it accessible to assistive technology. And, where you need to provide equivalent access, how you are going about it.

Thanks for any information you might be able to share.
