Flash Accessibility (508 Compliance)
I have been doing some research on making Adobe Flash SWfs 508 compliant and found some great resources I would like to share. FYI: Adobe has come quite a way in making Flash more accessible. Accessibility with Flash has been a challenge over the years and prevented many organizations, especially U.S. Government agencies, from using Flash.
Creating Accessible Sites in Flash - This Adobe presentation provides a great introduction on how to make Flash accessible to users with disabilities. It is also a good example of an accessible Flash site.
Adobe's Accessibility page - Resources for accessibility and Adobe products, including case studies and examples.
Flash Accessibility Tips - DoodleDoo's practical tips for making Flash accessible.
Flash Accessibility Requirements and Methods (FARM) - DoodleDoo's requirements guide along with an "Accessible Flash Checklist."
If you know of any resources for making Flash accessible, please share. Thanks.
