Don't just copy inkprint

Imagine a blind person reading a faithful copy, coming across lines and numbers, but what do they mean? "Ah ... here's a line ... I feel a dot ... and a number ... lines crossing ... a dot and a number ..."
The oval line is interrupted for a Braille capital letter: will that convey to the blind reader that this line encompasses something called 'B' or 'C' that's different from things outside?
Will the oval even be recognized for an oval? The intersections don't make that any easier.

The ellipses will just be curved lines, and there appear to be some numbers in the drawing. I think sensible editing can make a drawing like this a lot more meaningful: by hatching the sets in different patterns, explaining these patterns in a key and stating 'Venn- diagram, two sets' in the title, of course.
