Hi all
Here is a refined suggestion:

For non-text content, provide an equivalent text alternative.
If the text alternative cannot serve the same fuction or convey the same
information, provide a text label or a description.

Yvette's latest draft:
<suggestion>
For non-text content, provide text alternatives. Whenever possible the text
alternative should be equivalent to the non-text content, meaning it serves
the same function or conveys the same information as the non-text content.
If a text equivalent is not possible due to the nature of the non-text
content (for example: music and visual art), provide a text label or a
description.
