images as page headings

I have headings on a page that are actually images (because my client's marketing dept wants the headings in their particular corporate font). From searching the list archives I have seen someone suggest:

<h1><img src="welcome.gif" width="200" height="30" alt="Welcome" border="0"></h1>

Is this helpful to users of screen readers, or should I leave out the h1 tags?
