    Macromedia was very concerned about making this work for the web because that's where Flash is supposed to be used. I guess accessibility for the offline player was not a priority. However, if you try one of the third party projector tools that is based on the Flash OCX (see list below) instead of the Flash standalone player, you should find that these are "visible" to screen reader applications.
