Making a slideshow assessable.

Reason: I am wiser now.
In terms of hiding the text from the non-visually impared, I wonder would putting the desc in a title attribute do the trick for you?? Not sure if this will get "read out" for you.
<dl class="slideshow" id="someName">
<dt class="slideImage" id="someNameImg1"><img /></dt>
<dd class="slideCaption" id="someNameCap1">Text</dl>
<dt class="slideImage" id="someNameImg2"><img /></dt>
<dd class="slideCaption" id="someNameCap2">Text</dl>
<dt class="slideImage" id="someNameImg3"><img /></dt>
<dd class="slideCaption" id="someNameCap3">Text</dl>
No, not really. An accessible script of any sort needs to accomplish a few basic goals:
2. Any clickable item that changes the page must be keyboard navigable.
3. Any item that, when hovered over, changes its appearance or content should also be keyboard navigable.
It can be accessible to an extent but the you would have give the user control of the timing mechanism.
