There is an issue with the our legacy content player, which is written in Flash Actionscript 1 & 2. This
player behaves fine in most browsers on most platforms, but in IE10 on Windows 8 it doesn't work
Internet Explorer 110
Update Version: 10.0.9 (KB2870699)
Windows 8 Pro
This seems to because of the Flash engine's Accessibility object using the Microsoft Active
Accessibility (MSAA) API to detect the presence of Screen Readers. This detection is creating a false
positive on Windows 8 machines and that may be due to the touch screen support on that platform. This
doesn't appear to be occuring with Chrome or Firefox on the same platform; however. So I suspect that
IE or IE's Flash compenent is doing something different than these other browsers.
it's no surprise that avm1 didn't anticiipate win 8 or ie 10. you'll need to find your own work-around or update your code to use avm2.
This is legacy code and is too close to its end-of-life to justify porting to AS3. As far as a work-around I am already looking into it. I was hoping that someone had already encountered this issue and created a work-around. This would have saved time.
Any other takers?
