I work on the accessibility team at SAS - the market leader in business
analytics software. We are making great progress on accessible data
visualization. Here are a few examples ...

Last year we published a born-accessible astronomy text book that contains
a bar chart, line chart and scatter plot. Here are links to the book and
related resources:

3d models of the Hubble and James Webb Space Telescopes that can be printed
it on a 3d printer <http://www.thingiverse.com/SASInstituteInc/designs>;

We are actively working to incorporate accessibility into an iOS app called
SAS Mobile BI. The app allows you to view reports that have been created by
another SAS product called SAS Visual Analytics. Here are links to the app
and related videos:
