Responding to Inquiries
While we do not expect departments to receive frequent requests for accessible versions of Tableau data, each department should have a plan in place to address requests should they occur.
If your department receives an inquiry, you will first need to work with the individual to find out in what accessible format they would like the data in. And, then determine the best path forward to get the data into an accessible format for them in a timely fashion. If your department does not have a local expert to address inquiries, there are external vendors who can convert the data into accessible PDFs.
