Hi all,

Hope you are doing OK. Please no worries about responding to this email if
you do not have time or spoons.

For those who might know, especially blind and low vision colleagues, I'm
wondering if anyone knows the best way to format a graph, chart, or table
of data or information in a downloadable document so that it is
screen-reader accessible and actually usable (e.g. allows skipping to
different sections easily). Any information would be extremely helpful.
