Gratuitous Flash

I had occasion to look at the website of the Hertfordshire Local Access Forum and since I am running ClickToFlash I immediately noticed the gratuitous use of flash for navigation buttons. Hovering over a button revealed an uninformative filename like “button13.swf” and I had to load the flash to see what it was supposed to do (button 13 was actually “FAQ”). They got their site built for them by a company called AMIVA (UK) Ltd and I have suggested that they contact AMIVA to ask for a more accessible site, referring them to the Department of Communities and Local Government Website Accessibility Policy.
