Hmmm   I think requiring alternate formats for text either

 

-          means everything in text needs to be in graphics (which is
impractical)

or 

-          means it is ok to only make some info accessible on a page (bad
precedent)

or

-          it needs to say - all complex info is presented in graphics
(which is impossible to say what qualifies - and most users will not know
how to do)

 

otherwise this looks token.  

 

So it looks like not requiring anything (dropping this) may be best road.
???
