Remember however that the use of icons and infographics needs to take into account principals of Universal Design so that people of all ability levels can "read", understand and use. JE Sleeth OPC Accessible Design consultants since 1991

I disagree Jane. It would be great if everything were able to be accessible to everyone, but that is simply not the reality. We can't homogenise visual art into an accessible form, simply because some people can't see the fine details. That would be as wrong as never considering visually impaired persons, for example.
