I have a script I was playing with that I can't find at the moment, but I did see this:

I know the script I had, the images were all there in code as essentially an unordered list (with img alt tags)
The one I was using, didn't move automatically, I'll have to hunt it down.

You may want to check out slides.com <http://slides.com>; (there is also a free version of the underlying software). It is based on HTML and while I don't believe it has great accessibility out of the box, it may be easily feasible to enhance.

Like a picture of people sitting by a swimming pool with text saying "Sign up for a season pool pass" and a "sign up" link to the season pass page.
