Accessible Flash Action Games!
Research in accessible Flash has come a long way. Interactions that used to be hard to make accessible, such as Drag and Drop, an activity that depends on the use of a mouse, can now be programmed to be accessible to mobility impaired users who only use the Tab and Enter key on the keyboard.

This session will discuss different options to make Flash 508 accessible, and show some of Doodledoo's accessible Flash action games, and the research and creative programming that made them possible.

Accessible Flash and Flex Applications
Developers are increasingly interested in delivering accessible applications that use Flash-based technologies but are uncertain as to what is possible and how to develop and test their applications. This panel will look at best practices and examples, and share information on what's new in Flash accessibility.

Accessible Action Games!
Who says Flash cannot be interactive, fun and accessible at the same time?

At DoodleDoo we make educational Flash games 508 accessible to children with a disability. We come up with creative solutions for Flash games that generally people think can't be made accessible, such as jigsaw puzzles, coloring pages and adventure games for visually impaired users, and whack-a-mole and other mouse-dependant games for mobility impaired users.

This session will show some of our accessible Flash games, and the research and creative programming that made them possible.
