R-Ladies East Lansing hosting a virtual Accessible DataViz Meetup

Come learn how to make your data visualizations & presentations accessible to everyone.

Our first speaker, Keke Wu (PhD student at Univ of Colorado, Boulder) will talk about her research, Understanding Data Accessibility for People with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities (IDD), giving us concrete ideas about how to make better figures and reach the IDD community.

Our second speaker,Andrea Gomez Vargas (one of the winners of the ‘most accessible presentation’ award at useR! 2021), will talk about how to make an accessible presentation in R, using packages such as RMarkdown.

Learning accessibility in community

On this occasion I will tell you a little about our experience while preparing a talk for useR2021 and what accessibility practices we applied to our presentation, which may be useful to you when preparing a presentation using R.
