Alessio Cartocci's Flash Player (pointed out in 2 posts of mine last January

now supports SMIL for multilingual captioning, audiodescription and Sign
language through a secondary synchronized video stream.
So with this user agent it is possible to meet Level 3 Success Criteria
1.2.5 for Guideline 1.2.

See a complete example (with text/audio in English and Italian) of italian
Sign language interpretation through a secondary synchronized video stream
in SMIL 1.0 with Flash Video format, displayed in an internal draggable


The Url in the Object tag calls the SMIL file, which calls two flv, txt and
Mp3 files in the Swf player. Cartocci's Flash player supports Smil, Sami,
DFXP, QuickTime txt e Real rt.

(The audio tracks are used for a demonstration of the features, not for
audiodescriptive purpose, in this example.)

The Player is obviously improvable, therefore feedback will be useful.

I think that it is a good exemplification and resource for


So this sentence here: "Flash does not support SMIL" may be now modified, as
I say in my review of GL 1.2, with other non-editorial changes. ASAP I'll
update the wiki to incorporate the proposed changes.

Other video examples are linked at the bottom of the Web page. In a few days
there will be a complete tutorial in English in webmultimediale.org Website.

Best regards,
