You can always add descriptive terms/phrases in your image ALT tags.

>I've heard that search engines cannot read GIFs. Is this true?
>Our company is in the process of building our website. The home page is comprised primarily of GIFs. Thus I am in the process of creating title, keyword, and description tags.
