Flashpaper is an application and a document. The application can be used to
create flashpaper documents or pdf documents. The flashpaper document is a
flash file, but it is not authored in the Flash authoring tool.

The accessibility of Flashpaper documents depends on the file you use to
create the FlashPaper. Starting with a word document for example, an image
in the document with an equivalent defined in word will have an equivalent
in FlashPaper.

There is accessibility information and scripts available for FlashPaper to
