Perception of charts is a challenging task for blind and visually impaired people. Nevertheless, charts are an important tool to analyse data. Appropriate output media are needed making data analysis more accessible. We propose a workflow and tooling requirements to integrate the generation of accessible charts. Towards getting there, we present our current prototypical state and specify further steps.
