"Community organizations including the American Association of People With Disabilities, the WGBH National Center for Accessible Media, the National Federation of the Blind and activists like Mike Paciello, author of the first book on web accessibility, are all supportive of the new accessibility features in Macromedia Flash."
A nice start but very limited. I am going to see if I can find the article, but if I recall, the new "accessibility" is only supported by a single propriety browser. Of course, in any event, this IS still a start.
MSAA (Microsft Active Accessibility) and the Windows-Eyes Screen reader. The real question is: are the designers who are naturally "flash-focused" going to give up all of their core design techniques for accessibilitie's sake?
