    Oggetto: RE: Validity
    The specific reference here is related to use of <embed> with Flash.
    Recently, there has been activity around creating code that embeds Flash
    content in a page that follows standards. From a validity standpoint, it
    works great. However, there is a negative consequence here, this valid
    markup renders the Flash content inaccessible using that screen reader.
    After a few chats with the AT maker, it is clear that a simple fix is
    not forthcoming.  
that's all folks!
Here in Italy we said: "o Mangi la minestra o salti dalla finestra" (you must eat the soup otherwise go through the window).
So you confirm that is an user agent issue, not a web content issue.
I hope the Vendor will find a solution before 2006.
