Out of interest can you recommend such a site, that way can do a "view
source" to see how they implement it.
> There are ways of ensuring that Flash is accessible but I actually think that this can be acomplished at the moment by just following the best practise guidelines when writing. Again, I'm not all that great with Flash. I know it's a pain, and I hate when I come across it but there are sites that I've had to use who have it done quite well.
>> One site who really don't have it done well at all is bebo. They have a stupid flash box on some sites that play music, drowning out the speech from my screen reader and with no way that I can find to shut it up. For some reason, their controls don't seem to be labeled with any text alternatives so when I tab or arrow around them all I hear is button.
>> I also don't think that all the buttons are in the tab order so there are a few, such as the most important one, "stop" that don't allow me to give them focus using the keyboard at all.
>>> Again, I think the people at Front End are the best people to talk about in relation to this. They have had a lot of discussions with a lot of flash developers to find the best way of making flash accessible.
>> I'm glad you've taken some kind of an interest in it though. Pity more don't do the same.
