While I do not agree with the sarcasm in this post, I do have something
to say about flash.  From my own experiences, it is evil.  I have never
encountered a web site that uses flash that is fully accessible.

Also, it is not supported on some platforms which are becoming popular
lately because of their built-in accessibility, specifically, the
iPhone, iPad and latest iPod touch.  However, these platforms do support
html 5.  I'm not familiar with html 5, but I believe it can do what
flash does.

I'm not comfortable using a tool that requires flash.

Thanks,

William
