Hello Michelle,


Yes, an image of the graph should be find if there is alt text.


Alternatively, if you describe the graph in the main text, there is no alt text needed. The image can be marked as decorative.

I *think* that graphs should be presented is as an image file, but I'm checking the hive mind to see if there is a "best practices" for posting graphs, especially for accessibility.  I see that there is the option for interactive graphs, but I'm just posting static graphs at this point.  So, is the best option an image file, with a descriptive caption?
