Blind people still can't read Flash

The RNIB – the UK charity that helps people with sight problems – has described as “disappointing” Macromedia’s attempts to make its Web design software accessible to people with disabilities. Its assessment follows the recent introduction of Macromedia’s Flash MX technology, which enables blind people to view Web sites using screenreaders. Earlier versions of the popular Flash Web design tool were inaccessible to blind. In a bid to test whether Flash MX was up to scratch, the RNIB commissioned Web outfit, Bluewave, to create an online game that would be accessible to blind people using Flash MX.
