When visiting a website like:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/live/bbcone
flash content is no exposed to voiceover
Production steps:
•go to:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/live/bbcone
•Try playing some media content on the site with voiceover enabled.
•Try using the keyboard to control the playback of media content either by viewing the live stream, or watching a program from the site itself

Expected:
All flash elements would be exposed, and voiceover users would have the ability to manipulate flash controls via the keyboard

Actual:
elements are not exposed, and when a voiceover user encounters a flash element, all that is heard is "group".  Interacting with the group yields no results.
