Hi, Lloyd.

I've also sent the following comments to WebAiM, but I think it could be 
interesting to share it with the community:

Some comments about the Survey of screen readers...

- When you ask for the screen reader usage, perhaps it would be 
interesting to add a nuance for "primary" or "unique" screen reader. I 
suppose that advanced users or evaluators don't rely on a screen reader, 
but people that always use it rely only on *THE* screenreader they use. 
Perhaps the same nuance would be interesting for browsers.

- I think there is a big mistake about the Flash question, because you 
are not really evaluating the technology, but the ACTUAL USE of the 
technology. I think that if developers used Flash in an accessible 
manner, the results would be very different.

So I would not recommend "don't use Flash", but "Use Flash in an 
accessible way".

Thanks for this amazing survey :)
