Only one operating system platform leaves flash at minimally accessible
in my book.

"You have perhaps seen Flash that is accessible with particular
screen-readers..."
Then, by definition, flash is accessible.  It can become more
accessible, absolutely. But kindly do not discredit accessibility just
because it's not accessible in the way you'd like it to be. I find Flash
to be quite accessible. I'm sure that has something to do with the
adaptive tools and the computing environment I'm using, but those
decisions always have an impact, either positive or negative, on the
accessibility of software. Lobby for improvement, please do. but I find
blanket statements like "Flash is not accessible no matter what Adobe
tells you," to be pretty misrepresentative when I use it successfully
every day.
