RNIB releases guidelines for accessible Flash banner ads

The Royal National Institute of Blind People has just released a set of guidelines for building accessible Flash ads. While these are aimed at ads, there’s no reason you can’t use the same guidelines in all of your Flash projects.

  1. Provide a text equivalent for the animation.
  2. Provide an alternative for the Flash animation
  3. Readability
  4. Looping and blinking
  5. Test your move
  6. WCAG compliance
  7. Navigating Flash with a screen reader

See the full article for more information on these Flash accessibility guidelines.

Accessibility is more than making sure images have alternate text. I work with engineers, product managers, and designers to understand how accessibility impacts the users, set realistic deadlines, and create the solutions to provide a delightful experience to all users, regardless of their physical, sensory, or cognitive ability.
