New Tutorial on Flash Accessibility

We have a brand new tutorial to check out if you are interested in Flash accessibility. We worked with our good friends at Knowbility in Austin, TX, and Flash accessibility expert Thea Eaton of Doodledoo to create a very useful tutorial, which is itself built in Flash. The tutorial introduces Flash accessibility topics, and is accessible for screen reader and magnifier users, and includes closed captions for users who are deaf or hard-of-hearing and audio descriptions for blind or low-vision users.
You can view the tutorial at
If you prefer in-person training, you should check out Knowbility’s Access U Conference, which just took place in May, but is worth watching out for in the future also since Knowbility runs training events regularly.

InDesign Accessibility Best Practices

InDesign authors often ask about generating accessible PDF files. To help respond to this, we worked with David Blatner of to combine our accessibility experience with his deep knowledge of InDesign so that we could produce a document that would be useful to InDesign authors interested in accessibility.
The document is located at but you might also be interested in the InDesign product accessibility page for additional information.
Please pass on any comments.
