- Adobe Flex
Adobe has plans to stop updating and distributing the Flash Player at the end of 2020, and encourages authors interested in creating accessible web content to use HTML.
This technique relates to Success Criterion 2.1.1: Keyboard (Sufficient as a way to meet FLASH17: Providing keyboard access to a Flash object and avoiding a keyboard trap).
The objective of this technique is to demonstrate how to provide keyboard
access to a Flash MovieClip that is not keyboard accessible by default.
This technique ensures that the element is focusable by setting the
tabEnabled property, and it ensures that the action can be triggered
from the keyboard by providing a keydown handler in addition to a click
When a Flash Movie contains generic MovieClip instances that are used as interactive controls, confirm that:
- The MovieClip instance has its
tabEnabledproperty set to true
- The MovieClip instance has event handlers for both mouse and keyboard events
- #1 and #2 are true
