Best practice regarding "Loading" indicator images

Hi again,
I understand that in general if images are used that convey information they should be included in the html, however what about images that may be shown when waiting for a response from the server?
Should these also be in the html as img elements or is it okay for these to be background images just defined in css?
Also is there a way to indicate to the screen reader user that something is loading, e.g. when they press submit on the form.

Thanks in advance for your help
