Making PowerPoint presentations 508c compliant, specifically complicated charts?

I have been given a project to research and implement 508c compliance on some powerpoint files. Using the built in checker I was able to eliminate errors, but we are trying specifically to adhere to this checklist
(though we are not HHS).
The problem is that I did not create these powerpoints and there are a number of very complicated charts and graphics (like, flowcharts/organizational hierarchies). I am not sure I am getting this checklist since 1.7 asks if there are graphical elements including text, as a possible fail, yet section 2 deals with graphics.
Am I going to have to re-create all of these charts as text, or is alt-text explanations enough? If I do need to re-create everything, how do you make graphical flowcharts 508c compliant in a visually focused tool like powerpoint?
