Accessible way to hide email from Spiders

So I’m imagining you may know that you can use in-line Javascript to hide email addresses on a site from spiders. That’s all fine and dandy. However, the problem with inline JS is that screen readers and their ilk cannot parse it. The result is not accessible.

I, for client reasons, must build a site that fully accessible. However, the client also wants to at least reduce the chance of a crawler indexing their email address from the site. Does anyone out there have an accessible alternative that’s at least semi-functional (and simple character replacement won’t do the trick – that’s far too easy to work around for Spiders)

If I translated every character of the email address, would that do the trick? Of course, were I writing Spiders I’d definitely account for that.
