Macromedia Flash MX

Released in April of 2002, Macromedia Flash MX offers greatly improved accessibility features, including screen reader compatibility, although most of these enhancements work only in a Windows environment, as Flash MX communicates with Microsoft Active Accessibility.

Screen readers, sometimes incorrectly referred to as “voice browsers” or “text readers,” are browsers that speak web text aloud. Currently, the access improvements in Flash MX can be understood by the two leading screen readers, namely JAWS by Freedom Scientific [14.7] and Window-Eyes by GW Micro (http://www.gwmicro.com/press/flash.htm).
