Hi....looking for a way to hide graphics from screen readers.  I would like to have the Alt text not read.  If you leave it blank then the screen readers says "Image". I need to completely hide graphics.  

 

Possible???

You could merge images into the background image of each slide. This might mean a large number of background images and may not work so well for responsive design but this would reduce the number of screen reader spoken items.
