I shall try to make it more explicit. I'd rather hoped that the image already did that, but I'll try to use a bit less than a thousand words to achieve a similar goal.

I'm pretty sure there's no ambiguity there. I've re-read it and tried to see how you might think it was about generic data visualisation, but I can't manage it. And even if it had been, "Tufte" has been an outdated answer for at least a decade.

Thanks, but I really did know what I wanted to ask, and I've asked it. What I've asked is what I'm seeking an answer to. (If I'd wanted to ask "what was the state of the art in data visualisation 30 years ago", I'd have asked it, and I agree that Tufte's "The Visual Display..." would indeed have been the answer to that question.)

This doesn't seem to attempt to answer the question.

Thanks, but none of the information on that link provides any experimental evidence on inforgraphics that I can see. If I've missed it, please do pull it out explicitly, and cite the reference.

Thanks for this. But it doesn't really answer the question. I'm not really interested in whether the images were memorable. I'm interested in whether the data is comprehensible and retained. And that wasn't studied in this paper at all - all they did was see if people spotted duplicate images. There may have been some ambiguity in my question, as to the referent for "it" in "and retain it", so I've edited to remove that ambiguity. I apologise for any inconvenience caused by that ambiguity.

@JonW I've edited the question to exclude screen readers and the like; in this particular question, I'm interested in the effectiveness when there is no accessibility barrier.

comment Is giving users false assurance a good thing?
I think you mean audit. Or possibly error-tracing. Auditory refers to hearing.
