NVDA already renders the top level of embedded objects (i.e. Flash content) into virtual buffers. In order to provide access to these objects, NVDA should allow the user to "interact with" (set focus to) these objects by pressing enter. In addition, the user should be able to quickly "stop interacting" with the object; i.e. restore focus to the document. Rather than inventing an additional command, NVDA+space can be used.

Note that we're not discounting the possibility of rendering Flash and other content into the buffer, but this will serve as a first phase implementation at the very least. At most, it may prove to be better than rendering this content into the buffer.
