Power BI Accessibility

I have been reading the Power BI Documentation on Accessibility and reading some other reports on this and for example, this is just one negative comment on Accessability

 

"Power BI web interface is extraordinarily difficult for screen reader users due to inconsistent navigation requirements and unpredictable focus changes"

 

I have seen other people recommend not using Power BI when you have users with visual impairments and need to use a screen reader from around June 2020 and we have now been tasked to look into this. 

 

Does any one have any thoughts or recommendations about this. I really don't want our Accessibility team to say that Power BI isnt a good option?
