Problems with rss feeds not updating

It may be hard to justify that an HTML tutorial is equivalent to an interactive multimedia Flash tutorial.

The key is to make the alternative content equivalent, not necessarily text-only.

As such, nearly all Flash content on the web poses notable accessibility issues for many users with disabilities.

When all accessibility techniques are applied to Flash, it can be made accessible on platforms that support Flash and Flash accessibility, perhaps even more so than HTML, because the need for specific assistive technologies (with their accompanying limitations) is removed.

For developers, the ability to program one multimedia presentation that could be viewed the same on nearly all computers made the technology very appealing.

There are three ways in which the Flash content can be made accessible to screen reader users: By making your Flash movie self-voicing, you remove the need for the screen reader.

In essence, you are taking over the role of the screen reader by conveying audibly any content that is presented visibly within the Flash movie.

At this time, only modern versions of the JAWS and Window-Eyes screen readers that are using the Flash 6 player within Internet Explorer on Windows can provide even marginal access to Flash content.

In order to be fully accessible to screen reader users on these limited platforms, the content must have been developed for accessibility. Because the vast majority of Flash content cannot be made natively accessible, it will probably be vital for you to provide a non-Flash alternative for those that cannot or choose not to access your Flash multimedia.
