Your culprit: s1.addParam("wmode","transparent");
They are using a windowless mode and don't even need to here. If they change this to
then you can do some further testing.

Subject: [WebAIM] insight about weird flash
Hi. Well, I figure I'm here, I might as well jump right into picking brains.
I was asked to check a site over for accessibility issues. Oh me oh my, they have some work to do. The headings, ug, the graphics, ug, the strange labeling of links, ug ug ug, but my biggest issue is how come JAWS skips right over the play buttons for the movies? The page is http://www.edmedia.tv/Default.php?pID=16
I can't find a single play button on the page, although they appear to be bleedin' obvious to anyone with eyeballs. Apparently System Access-users can also find them. I thought it was due to them coded in shockwave flash, but then I saw the following page: http://www.paulspond.com/index.php?entry=21
and I can see those fine.
Thank you in advance for any help at all.
