Image based nav that meets AAA standards?

The designer is the ultimate determinant of whether and how a site 
meets accessibility guidelines. There are too many nuances (and 
opinions). That said, your best bet might be creative use of 
background images with the actual link text present - but just tiny or 
positioned off screeen. If CSS is disabled, the menu would display as 
an ordinary list. I'm sure others have examples to point you at, but 
this example might give you food for thought:

It's a pulldown menu, but the technique would work as well for a 
single root level.
