Topic: swfIR: swf Image Replacement and Accessibility
Has anyone seen/used the new way of handling images with swfIR: swf Image Replacement? This look like a really neat and easy to use way of transforming images in more complex ways than possible with standard HTML.
According to Jeffrey Zeldman it supports standards-based design concepts. Is that completely correct when it comes to accessibility? What is the effect on page load times? Does it degrade properly for mobile web users and users without flash?
I'm just curious about this new tool because it seems like a neat way of manipulating images. Please share your thoughts
