Looking for your thoughts on whether Macromedia's FlashPaper would be
acceptable to use, from an accessibility standpoint. They claim it is
accessible. We have done some testing and found FlashPaper docs to be
readable by Window-Eyes and JAWS, but not by Home Page Reader. It also
does require the Flash plug-in. It has come up as a question because
it's included in Contribute 3, which many of our state webmasters here
are using. We would like to offer them guidelines as to whether or not
to use this option.
