Flash and our new website
The New Hepatitis B Foundation website uses Flash to present navigational elements and to communicate key site content. With the release of Macromedia Flash MX and Flash Player 6, Macromedia has demonstrated a clear ongoing commitment to accessibility that has been widely acknowledged and praised by many people working in the area of disability support.
- We are recommending Flash 6, 7 or 8 for optimal experience.

There may be some visitors to our site who are unable to install Flash, or whose assistive devices cannot operate with Flash. For those individuals, the Hepatitis B Foundation is providing an alternative access path to our information contained in the Flash elements in the form of a standard HTML version of the content.
