These accessibility best practices can be used across items. Think of them when you are creating a word document, a Power Point presentation, a website, or a PDF.
Don't shy away from using images:
"Images and graphics make content more pleasant and easier to understand for many people, and in particular for those with cognitive and learning disabilities. They serve as cues that are used by people with visual impairments, including people with low vision, to orient themselves in the content." -- World Wide Web Consortium (W3C). (2017). Web Accessibility Tutorials. Retrieved from: https://www.w3.org/WAI/tutorials/images/
The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) has created a very useful guide on how to create useful alt-text.
