    Accessible flow diagrams

    Is there a truly accessible way of showing flow diagrams - used to aid a moderately complex decision-making process? At the moment I am thinking of dropping in a gif or png. With an alt tag, that would pass an automated test, I think; but I would prefer really to help the end-user.

    One way I have thought of is a series of php pages opening up, dependent on previous selection. Clunky though.

    If it were a basic structure then nested lists would be your awnser but as you said it's complicated I'm thinking you should be using internal links.
    HTML Code:
    <div class="step" id="A">
    <p>Does the thing do the thing?</p>
    <ul>
    <li><a href="#AA">Yes</a></li>
    <li><a href="#AB">No</a</li>
    </ul>
    </div>
    <div class="step" id="AA">
    <p>Then hit it. <strong>End of process</strong></p>
    </div>

    I rather like that. I'll have a play. It may also be possible with nested lists - I'll have a look at that, too. Thanks.
