Hi .. I know its good practice to have alternative text navigation if a site is using a flash nav bar, but is this compulsory? Someone has "proof read" one of my sites looking for those errors you miss when designing and has commented

"All Flash navbars and graphical links need visible text alternatives to comply with European legislation on accessibility" ..

he also goes on to say "nothing for screen-readers to read so as not accessible to partially sighted. Also page would make no sense to mobile browsers who have Flash, Images and Javascript turned off"

Laudible points, but how much does everyone take such considerations into account, and does anyone know if it is really EU law to have text nav bars throughout site?
