You may have missed the lengthy debates, however people with learning
difficulties and non-readers in particular benefit from graphics. Text even
when read may not be understood.

The following two links may help.

"How People with Disabilities Use the Web"
http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/Drafts/profiles-19990930.html. Cognitive and
Neurological Disabilities is about half way through.

"WAI Scenarios for Accessibility" http://www.w3.org/WAI/EO/WAIscenarios.htm
This is a very useful attempt to help web site designers empathise with
users circumstances
