Flash player update makes screenreader accessible Flash work on Browsers other than internet explorer

October 1, 2007

In the first piece of news worthy of posting for quite some time now, how very disappointing, maybe things will warm up now the summer hols are over, Adobe have released an update to the Flash Player which includes the MicroSoft Active Accessibility (MSAA) support meaning that screenreader users can now gain access to accessible Flash content in Plug-in based Browsers. or in other words, Browsers other than Internet Explorer. Thanks to Niqui Merret for the heads-up and to Steve at dynamic Flash for the links through to details and downloads.
