Ara Pehlivanian has a few words to say on the accessibility of Flash:
Disabling the Flash context menu is a bad idea! By turning it off (actually setting the menu propertyâ€™s value to â€œfalseâ€œ), youâ€™re not only not allowing me to lower the quality of the animation, but youâ€™re also not allowing people with impaired vision to be able to zoom the content for easier reading. So, though it may be cool, or â€œinâ€ to do it, the next time youâ€™re tempted to turn off the context menu, do us slower computer owners a big favour and donâ€™t.
He must have seen this a few times recently. I like the view-source option that was added. Hopefully more and more will turn it on and share.
