Kid-Friendly Flash Builder?

My 9-year-old daughter likes to animate things on GoAnimate.com. The website allows you to upload flash animations, and she'd like to make her own animations of, say, the Sesame Street characters. The canonical program for building flash animations is Adobe Flash Professional. I'm guessing that is beyond her capabilities (and may be beyond mine!). Are there simpler programs that allow a patient but unsophisticated user to build very simple flash animations?

Flash help for the Dummy

I'm looking for some websites for the beginner. I'm fine with the animation part. That is (relatively) easy. But I'm pretty much totally lost on the Action script part of it, and the Adobe tutorials are a little complicated for my idiot self. I'm just a little ol' designer and all this talk of code and scripts and computer lingo is freaking me out. I'll take anything. Any ideas. Any help. Anything. Thank you.

Is there an alternative to Adobe Flash Player?

I reformatted my computer today, and I just finished reinstalling all of the programs i can't live without (Media Monkey, VLC, Firefox, uTorrent, you get the idea.) For some reason I think I remember that I had found an alternative to installing Adobe Flash Player. I really dislike Adobe Flash, though I'm sure its for stupid and mostly superficial reasons. Does anyone have any idea of an alternative? (not the one microsoft just came out with either.)

Does anyone know of a book that covers Flash CS3 from the ground up?

Does anyone know of a book that covers Flash CS3 from the ground up? I need it all, from beginner stuff to Flex. I'm hoping to find a book that has a general introduction to Flash, a language reference for Actionscript, and a thorough review of Flex. This is asking for a lot. Perhaps what I need is a series of books? [more inside]

How to create text-to-speech in Adobe Flash?

I'm trying to create a Flash application that will accept user-inputted text, then turn it into cheesy computer-generated speech. I'm hoping there's a Flash library or pre-built application that does this, but I haven't been able to find such a thing. I would prefer the final app be in Flash, but I am open to other solutions. Cost not an issue.

Flash 8 for Linux?

What is the story with Flash 8 (and 9) for Linux? I'm running into more and more sites that say that they only work with version 8 or just don't work at all and I assume that it is because I'm using version 7. Is there hope that Adobe will come out with a new version for Linux someday soon or can I get version 8 working through wine? [more inside]
