Summary of Issue: SC 1.1.1 & Conforming Alternate Version
Comment (Including rationale for any proposed change):
- A web page uses Flash which is non-conforming.

- Flash is a technology that this content "uses but does not rely upon".

- A link to conforming alternate HTML version is provided by using "G190: Providing a link adjacent to or associated with a non-conforming object that links to a conforming alternate version" in order to meet Conformance Requirement #1.

- object element is used for embedding Flash.

In this case, do we have to provide text alternative for Flash by using "H53: Using the body of the object element"? 

If a link to conforming alternate version is provided via an accessibility-supported mechanism, it can be sufficient as users can go to conforming alternate version by following the link.

Providing a descriptive label for Flash can be redundant. 

Proposed Change:
