Flash takes Adobe to the White House!

This morning Adobe’s Andrew Kirkaptrik was able to witness history with President Obama signing the 21st century video accessibility bill. As part of National Disability Employment Awareness Month, President Obama this morning signed the Accessibility Act, which will increase access to video programming on the Internet – something that Adobe Flash video has supported since Flash CS3.flash-logo

Impact of this legislation has on Flash developers will be the delivery of closed captions for video online, followed by the provision of accessible controls for video and video description to aid comprehension of content by users who are blind or visually-impaired, many requirements that Adobe tools already provide support! See Andrew’s blog for more detailed information.
