I thought you all might be interested. There is a new
tool that "makes Flash captioning practical". Here's a
direct quote from the article Flash News Flash: It's
Accessible, written by Lisa Delgado, at Wired News:

"To make the site accessible to deaf children, he
invented a groundbreaking Flash captioning tool that
has subsequently been purchased by Macromedia. Soon,
the whole Flash community will be able to use the
tool, because Macromedia plans to release it as a free
downloadable extension on the Flash exchange within a
month."
