Try role="presentation".

Also, do things not get hidden from the screen reader when display: none or
visibility: hidden are used? If you look at the 4th question under
it shows that aria-hidden is advisory, allowing DOM-based ATs to retrieve
changes to whether something is hidden. However, it is preferred that ATs can
use another API to determine visibility and changes to visibility. IOW, using
display: none or visibility: hidden is the right way to hide something from a
screen reader.
