Flash replacement - testing needed


From: Stephanie Sullivan

Hi guys... I have been experimenting with a technique called sIFR that uses
a dynamic Flash alphabet to replace headings on a web page. It only works if
JS and Flash 6 or higher are installed... Otherwise, the browser renders CSS
styled text.

I was under the impression that this is accessible and I know it's indexable
by Search Engines.... However, accessibility was questioned yesterday and I
would REALLY like to know the answer once and for all (I'm getting two
different reports. LOL)

If anyone has JAWS, could you test this page please?

Window Eyes are anything else would be great too... Thanks!
