Flash accessibility?


From: Roades, Adam

I am wondering if anyone has developed, seen, used, or heard of an
accessible program that was developed in Macromedia Flash. What I'm looking
for is a complete Flash interface that is accessible (versus an "eye-candy"
animated graphic).
We are working on a project that involves a CD-based multimedia presentation
and we plan to use Flash to program it. We've tinkered with their
"accessibility kit" and been much less than impressed so far. We're
currently experimenting with ideas to provide users with an option to turn
on an "audio descriptions" track that would read the screen contents and
instructions. And, of course, we'd provide captions for any spoken
narration. And we've used Flash's ability to keyboard navigate the entire
program. However, if anyone has ideas, scripting ideas, Flash tutorial
resources, or an actual file that we can piggy-back on, I would greatly
appreciate it. Thanks!
