Adobe Flash Deprecation

Q
Why did Rehearsal decide to discontinue the use of Flash?
A
Adobe announced in 2015 that it would be phasing out their Flash web-browser plugin by the end of 2020. Rehearsal depended on the Flash plugin to operate within browsers other than Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, which include technology that enables Rehearsal to function without the use of a plugin.
Q
When will Rehearsal discontinue to use Flash?
A
On November 14, 2019, Rehearsal discontinued the use of Flash in our application.

If the user decides to proceed without moving to Chrome or Firefox (they click on Ignore This Message), they will only be able to respond to Audio & Video required scenarios and Screen Capture scenarios after installing, when prompted, the screen recorder app. Due to this change, if users continue to use other browsers requiring Flash to access Rehearsal, they will not be able to respond to Hotseat, Audio Only and Presentation scenarios.
