Flash menu accessibility

Does anybody have any resources on Flash accessibility? I have a client
who demanded a Flash based menu; now I'm struggling to at least allow
tabbing through the links. I know it has to do with setting the
'tabIndex' element of Actionscript, but I'm having trouble with setting
that properly and can't find much out there in the way of guidelines,
since Flash MX and its accessibility features is relatively new. And I
am no Actionscript guru.

Or would it be better to just go for the "text equivalent" solution in
this case?
