Is the primary goal to make visualizations accessible or to provide access 
to data? If to provide access to data (which usually ends up presented in a 
visualization), I propose, "Making Large Data Sets Accessible for Persons 
with Disabilities."

It still feels a little awkward, but "visualization" used out of context 
(i.e., just in a title) is likely to be misinterpreted  (e.g.,  PFWG is 
working on  "visual verification."  When I told someone our next topic is 
"visualizations" she thought we were doing "visual verification.")
