>Hmmm well it's not really, as you do need a plug-in to view Flash and
>a lot of people can't use it.
WRONG! You need a browser to view a website and a computer to go
online and an Internet connection to visit a site, so really, out of
all that, installing Flash is pretty much the EASIEST part of the
equation and the one that requires the LEAST amount of effort. Flash
installs itself automagically in just a few seconds on a broadband
connection with no more than a couple clicks from the user. And what
do you mean a lot of people can't use it? Flash works on pretty much
ANYTHING, unless you're some idiot running some obscure hardware and
software combination like a PowerPC running Linux...although even then
there are work arounds to get Flash to work.
>Did you not read what I wrote about me

Um, hello, the only time you would be using a screen reader is IF YOU
WERE FUCKING BLIND! And if you were blind...why in the fuck would you
have Flash enabled?
I mean maybe if you wanna try and claim you're simply illiterate...
Further, if it was THAT important to you, why wouldn't you simply copy
the text portions and paste them into say Notepad?
detecting the presence of Flash, it's detecting the presence of

And everything else being Flash based. Really, the problem isn't with
Flash, the problem is with those third party software developers who
are simply lazy fucking antediluvian bastards. I mean if Google can
setup their search engine to spider all the text content in a Flash
file...yeah, anybody can do it, there is no excuse. Of course there
is also blame to be put on the USERS who WANT that functionality since
it's largely up to you to contact those third party vendors and tell
them what functionality you're looking for. If they get enough people
asking for it, they'll develop it.
>Oh and I do agree with your ideas in that article.
Yay, you read it, congratulations you're not retarded.
