While NVDA works fine with the current implementation, JAWS needs the divs themselves to have an explicit role to pick them up properly and read them to the user. Since the divs essentially contain a graphical representation, the "img" role is appropriate to use in this context. This makes JAWS pick up the information for each bar without any further problem.
