The Paciello Group held the Flash accessibility and WCAG 2 webinar today. You can view the recorded event with captioningonline. The Paciello Group will be posting the slides at
We ran into a couple of technical glitches in the opening minutes – the audio cuts out for most of the first minute introduction, and the captioner had difficulty dialing into the phone bridge so the captions are absent for about the first 8 minutes. In retropect I wish I had pointed this out to the TPG presenters so the event would wait a few minutes to get the captions resolved but I wasn’t as on top of that as I will be next time. The remaining 82 minutes is captioned, although live captioning of the screen reader demos is often written as “indistinct audio”. Tough work, live captioning.
Hope the webinar is interesting and useful.

    Great webinar, Andrew! During the call you mentioned a work around that allows a person to tab into Flash objects inside of Firefox. Can you post some more details on that work around? Thanks!
