Creating reports for the visually impaired.

Hello all,

Does anybody have experience in building reports for users that are blind who are using a screeenreader to consume the reports? Several of my colleagues are in this situation and I am creating reports with tables only for them so they can access the information.

One of the problems encountered is that a screenreader cannot pick up on a hover-over menu. This makes exporting data to excel impossible, and would like to find a way around that.

I am curious to hear if somebody has some experience in this area!
