Learning About Business Intelligence – Challenges of the Visually Impaired
Modern business systems, especially those of middle and large size, generate a large amount of different data.
This data is important for proper analysis, prediction of future trends or in other words for making various business
decisions. The large amount of data that can be found in many different formats and in different technology can be stored on
multiple locations that all refer to the same business system. Education about technology, such as various business
organizations’business intelligence systems and data warehouses is important part of many higher education curriculums.
However, since many business intelligence tools rely on various graphical representations of data they are not suitable for
visually impaired students. In this paper a discussion about challenges that visually impaired students encounter when trying
to learn about business intelligence is given along with directions for future research.
