Last night I was fortunate enough to meet DL Byron of Texturadesign. He was in town for a CHIFOO lecture entitled, "Stephen Hawking & Me: Accessibility, practicality and standards." In his presentation he went through the process so describing some of the issues he had with developing for accessibility while still using Flash for part of the presentation. The site he was developing was Clip-N-Seal, a site focused on a bag sealing product Byron designed. All in all the presentation was a big eye-opener on what is and isn't possible with Flash accessibility and what challenges you may encounter along the way when you are trying to make a site accessible. The end result, however, is well worth the time an effort. See the presentation link above for more details.
