We need to provide accessible versions of all our charts, we use JAWS to read charts in our applicaiton.|
The only accessible options i can see with a BIRT chart is the alt text, (maybe the report title). Ideally I would like a screen reader like JAWS to read the chart data and not just the chart title/alt text, so for a pie chart I would like JAWS to be able to read a pie chart to a user something like:
chart name - number of employees by type
slice 1 - permenant staff 100
slice 2 - temporary staff 20 ....
does the BIRT chart module support this now in BIRT 2.6.1, or expose api's to support this feature for screen readers ? or is this feature in a road map for a future version ?
If not, we may may need need to show the chart's data as html tabular reports which JAWS can read, I presume JAWS can read html rendered through BIRT reports, can anyone confirm this? before I test it.
