Hello Alex

WCAG2 in itself includes some success criteria that cover infographics, 
or any other non textual content for that matters, so you need to look 
at ways to implement this requirement in your infographics format of 
choice. The default being to provide a meaning full alternative in text.

Wrt to choosing a format, have you looked at SVG and ARIA ?
