Making reports visually accessible is a common challenge for charities and other organisations. Tim Bidey presents ten easy-to-implement tips to improve the visual accessibility of your reports.
I recently attended a data visualisation course at UAL, and met a whole group of professional data visualisers. “What a luxury!” I thought, that organisations can have dedicated teams who work solely on visualising data, and it reminded me that many of us are not that lucky. In most of the organisations I have worked for, this has been a small part of the job of the people writing reports – talented researchers that generally aren’t trained in visual design or data visualisation. We could probably all boost our skills and improve engagement with our social research data in reports, presentations, social media, and more.
