I am trying to figure out the best way to write alt text for line graphs.
I am wondering what techniques others have used.  Graphs are used to
represent data quickly, but they also contain a lot of data.  How do I
balance the amount of information?  I also have to find a technique that
content editors can implement easily.  The only technique I can think of is
to include an accessible data table with the data.  Looking forward to any
input or suggestions.

Thanks in advance!
