Bookmark: "A template for accessible data visualizations"

Sebastian Greger


This is a brilliant reference project on the process and design behind creating accessible data visualizations.

Here are some of the key improvements that made our data and reports more accessible and easy to use:

  1. Consistent dashboard layouts
  2. Focused, simple data visualizations
  3. Accessible text to support the data
  4. Mobile responsive dashboards
  5. Special care to accessibility for screen readers
  6. Templates and guidance to streamline adoption

The team published their learnings in a public guide:


I'm Sebastian, Sociologist and Interaction Designer. This journal is mostly about bringing toge­ther social science and design for inclusive, privacy-focused, and sustainable "human-first" digital strategies. I also tend to a "digital garden" with carefully curated resources.

My occasionally sent email newsletter has all of the above, and there is of course also an RSS feed or my Mastodon/Fediverse profile.
