If the user wishes to increase the size of text in an iframe or other container
element, the text may overflow the container. When text overflows the size of a
box and the attribute value is set so that the overflow value is "hidden", the
overflow text may not be passed to the Assistive Technology and the user may
not be able to see the text that does not fit in the container.

Proposal: Add after chart (Attribute value/'overflow' value) 
When the user has increased the text size of the document, the 'overflow' value
should always be set to 'scroll'.
