From Steven Tribbie, Opportunities for Ohioans with Disabilities:

We have a relatively small number of staff that would require accessibility features and to date these staff have not used Tableau directly. Outputs from Tableau are generated in an accessible format, such as Crosstab (Excel), which are then distributed for staff use.

From Jennifer Beilke, MN State Services for the Blind:

MN State Services for the Blind does not use Tableau software.

From Darcy Fleming, Alliance Enterprises, Inc.:

I work with Alliance Enterprises, Inc. the software provider of Aware and reseller of Tableau Software. We have done extensive accessibility testing of Tableau because we are reselling the product. I have also had discussions directly with Tableau on their position regarding 508 compliance. At Alliance we decided to offer equal data analytics products in addition to Tableau because of accessibility limitations. These equivalent products are Microsoft based.

If you are interested we would be happy to share our findings with you and discuss the products we offer in addition to Tableau to meet accessibility. I also have 508-compliance level documentation from Tableau I can share, including their VPAT. Let me know if you are interested. (
