About image sliders


I have just plunjed into the world of accessibility so please forgive if I sound novice.

Now problem is that, I am working on a project which is a website that shows a big image slider. The images convey important information both in textual and non textual form, and this slider is inaccessible.

My question is that is there any standard technique to make it accessible and if is it okay to make it accessible by hiding the entire slider div by aria-hidden and rendering the info in simple text, that is hidden from sighted users through css, without changing the layout of the site?

Kindly let me know the best thing to do to get it aligned with Level AA.

Many Thanks,
