No, that is incorrect.  Recent versions of Flash have begun to introduce the
ability to make Flash based content accessible.  Last I heard, there were some
limitations with current support in some screen readers, though that was a
while ago and I'm not sure how much progress has been made since.  But the
point is that Flash and other plugins can and should be implemented using
accessible techniques.
