Flash and tabindex

Hello all,

Has anyone had any luck with tabindex in Flash or Flex?

I'm always told it's simple and straightforward, yet we never seem to make
it work properly in my team when using the Flash player in Internet
Explorer with Jaws.

The reading order is never correct, and yet we did explicit tabindex and
tabchildren declarations.

Enclosed is the sample MXML that JAWS 7.1 seems to be unable to read in
the right order.

Thanks in advance,

Stephane Deschamps
