Re: iCaption2 Student Project to create people learnabout and create captions for Flash Videos

This is my first foray into developing with Flash/Flex technology. Part of the project for me was to learn more about Flash/Flex technology accessibility. But the tool seems to be useful to some people for creating captions for Flash FLV files and I hope that in the future the tool itself will be more accessible itself. Flex technology seems to have some limitations in keyboard support that only came out after the students started the project, so it has been a learning process for me. But rather than throw the baby out with the bath water, I decided to see if the captioning interface was useful to people trying to create captions.

I do appreciate feedback though on the tools features and if people have suggestions on how it would be more useful to them.
