Flash MX

As of this writing, Flash cannot be made as accessible as an HTML document.

This information is provided because Flash developers will continue to use Flash whether it is accessible or not. Until Flash can be made as accessible as HTML, please use all the accessiblity techniques available in the most current version of Flash. It’s not there yet, but it keeps getting better.

I’ve learned almost everything I know about Flash accessibility from Bob Regan, head of the Macromedia Accessibility team. Unfortunately, he no longer updates his blog, but you can still find the achives on Bob Regan’s Flash Accessibility web log.
