Rule n° 12 - Each graph is accompanied by its numerical data.

A picture might be worth a thousand words but a chart might be hiding a thousand more words if the data underlying it is not made available . In some user contexts users can not access the graphics rendering, and data access will enable them to understand the content.

  • Improve the accessibility of content for people with disabilities.

Implementation

  • Display in a structured way, somewhere close to the chart, all the numerical data that it represents, for example in the form of a data table.
  • Alternatively provide close to the chart a link to content of the same type.

Control

Check that, for each chart, there is structured content indicating all the numerical data that it represents, or a link towards a page providing this.
