if you follow the link i posted, they mention the runtime, and developing...they have some templates and best-practice documents listed, as well as a few other things...
i'm not 100% it is, but it seems like it is from adobe's site...

even so, i'd contact them to clarify, find out anything extra, see where they are taking a11y webdev tools, etc

Flash Player 11 is the runtime, and does support accessibility on Windows systems for simple controls and textual information, but that is different from the authoring tool which is what I believe was being asked about.  I believe that if you ask the Adobe accessibility team you’ll get the same answer.  ☺

supposedly flash player 11 is accessible for development....

that said, i would contact adobe's accessibility team and ask them specifically.....there's a contact link in the right column of that document

It probably isn't the best forum but the quick answer is probably not. If a user is visually impaired but with some amount of vision they might be able to use it with difficulty but if completely blind probably not. I say probably because there are always people that figure out ways to accomplish things that seem impossible, but I do believe that the challenges are severe with tis authoring tool.
