Could anybody help advice me on this?

My company is designing a web application build in
Flash (accessible via pop up link, from the main
site), this web application will be a visual tool to
provide a very visual and user friendly overview, of
the existing content for this site main large (content
speaking) website.

I am aware that the application as it is will not meet
Accessibility guidelines. (Build in Flash and popping
up form a new window browser)

Will it be ok (in terms of accessibility) if we
provide also an alternative HTML version of the
information? A flat version will be a bit
contradictory with the whole purpose of the tool?

Thanks in advance
