Just an aside.... I wanted to test some Flash on a site where we had marked
it up carefully... Both of the people that I personally know with
screenreaders (both JAWS) couldn't test for me... Neither had Flash
installed. :P

So I suppose until people with assistive tech realized that Flash is
accessible (if it is) they're not installing it.
