Dear all,

during the translation of Flash Techniques for WCAG into German we found a few more errors or omissions.

Thanks for clarification,

Tomas Caspers



----

> Each following role contains a question and a radio button in each cell corresponding to answer choice in the three columns.

Shouldn't that be "row" instead of “role“?

----

> Check that a label element associates the text with all input elements of type "radio", "checkbox", "text", "file" or "password", for all textarea elements, and for all select elements

Shouldn't that be "with all textarea elements, and with all select elements"?

----

> The id reference list contains one or more unique element id's.

id's ist not a Genitive - it's just a plural so there shouldn't be an apostrophe I think.

----

> Note: Note: At this time, WAI-ARIA is a Working Draft.

Note appears twice.

----

> Flash player is often used to display video, and it provides support for text tracks which can be used to provide closed captions or subtitles in any language, and it also support multiple tracks of audio, thereby enabling support for video description, and support for multiple video tracks, enabling the delivery of sign language interpretation for audio-visual content.

...it also support...  there is an "s" missing in the word support - should read "supports".

The last part of the sentence would be easier to understand if it would either be: " ... and it supports multiple video tracks.."  or else " ...and it provides support for multiple video tracks.... "

----

> The Flash Player supports the ability for authors to control which graphics appear to assistive technologies using the silent property of the accessibility opbect, as indicated in the examples below.

object is spelled wrong (obpect)

----

> The hotspot are implemented as invisible Flash buttons, which are each given an accessible name that describes the hotspot's target.

Should either read  "the hotspot is" or "the hotspots are" 

----

> When focus has been placed inside the Flash movie, press the tab order repeatedly to traverse its contents by keyboard.

Should one press the Tab key?

----

> The objective of this technique is to demonstrate how to invoke a scripting function in a way that is keyboard accessible by attaching it to keyboard-accessible, standard Flash components provided by the Adobe Flash Profressional authoring tool.

Should be Professional (without the r after the Prof)

----

> 'swfNext-<next ID>', where '<next element>' should be the ID value of the next element in the tab order.h

What is the h after the period supposed to mean?

----

> The working example of Providing a button in the HTML before the Flash object to stop sound  is available.

Should read: The source of ....

----

> The working version of A thick blue border to indicate focus is available.

Should read: The source of ....

----

> This example is the same as example 2, except using ActionScript instead of the accessibility control panel in the Flash Professional authoring tool.

This text is the text of example 2 - so it can't be the same as example 2

----

> Ensure that the textual descriptions for each form control within the flash application is placed adjacent to the control itself.

textual descriptions is a plural form, the verb (is) is singular.

----

> Open a web page containing an embedded flash objects

Flash objects should either be in the singular or the verb should be plural
