I'd take the dive to HTML5 and live with the 4 per cent.
So I've been building training software for a company for years, and we've always used flash and captivate. Export to swf and html and play on the internet or locally as a swf of html5. Apparently there is word from above that we shouldn't use swfs anymore, due to security issues and always having to update with patches. I started to look into HTML 5, but it seems to have tons of limitations as far as what browser versions need to be installed, and what features would or wouldn't be able to work in those browsers.
So I need to be able to simulate tasks on a screen/computer, for the user to watch, but also build the same thing so the user can perform this task as well. So clicking, entering text, dragging and dropping, ie. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I would too Bob. The problem is these machine are basically on lockdown, and users can't update versions of browsers until they pass all kinds of security tests. So basically we are stuck with IE 8 and Firefox 17. I think HTML5 will be the way to go eventually when the browsers can be updated to something a little bit current at least, but until then that few percent for the general public is about 99 percent of our users affected.
