Ack. I told them that it was likely set to transparent or opaque. He responded with "it's not transparent." I think the poor boy doesn't understand.

Hello Carin,

The wmode parameter of the object tag is set to "Transparent". This must
be set to "window" (i.e. <PARAM NAME="WMode" VALUE="window">) or not set
(defaulted to window).

Once set to window, accessibility of the Flash movie will be exposed
through the player and to AT.

Hi. Can anyone zoom over to www.austinlizards.com and tell me why
screenreader-users cannot see the buttons in the player frame? I have the
ear of the webmaster. It would be good to have something intelligent to
speak into it.
