The standards themselves recommend transitional content—that is, content where you’re trying your best to present to as wide an audience as possible, understanding that you may not have gotten around to providing text equivalents of your Flash games.

Secondly, the wording of rules themselves as presented in Dreamweaver can be confounding. Some are presented as positives and some as negatives, so that when you run a check, you may not know whether you’ve broken a rule or not. “Scripts are accessible” sounds like an affirmation that the scripts on your page are doing just fine, but in fact it’s a motto that actually means “Make sure your scripts are accessible.”
