Time charting widgets

I'm trying to find some options for creating accessible graphs of timeline events and test-driving a few. I was wondering if anyone here has had any experience or preference using different JS/AJAX solutions for dynamic graphs.

The one that, to me, looks like it would be the most (potentially) accessible so far is Timeplot ( link --> http://www.simile-widgets.org/timeplot/ ) which is part of the Simile Widgets library of data visualization tools. It creates tooltips and labels along with the graphics.

I would really like hear any opinions/pitfalls about creating accessible charts and graphs you may have run into.
