It seems to generally work correctly in IE although there is a related
issue with sometimes not being able to get focus back on the web page
after entering the address bar.

Are there any browsers where Flash passes WCAG 2.1.2, avoiding the
keyboard trap? In order to control a Flash object via the keyboard, unless
controlled are embedded via JavaScript or some other method (at which
point Flash is more of a media player than anything else), you do need
first to get the keyboard into the Flash object. As far as I know, there
are no browsers  which allow keyboard escape from Flash.
