Re: JAWS and Flash



Hi, I just tested your site using Jaws 4.0, and internet explorer 5.5, and
it seams to work fine thus far.
The flash seams to work fine if you use the hot keys to  run the media
files.
Under Linux when I tested it with speakup using the Lynx browser it was
partly accessible.
I could read the text, but the Macromedia flash stuff of course was not
usable.
Is this what you wanted to know?
