Most of my website's pages were created with Flash. Since Adobe will discontinue supporting Flash in December 2020, can my pages be converted from Flash to something that will display them properly, i.e., with the "animation" and "navigation" intact?  Also, since many small non-computer devices, such as phones, do not support Flash, would they be able to display the converted pages properly?

No you can’t just convert Flash SWF. That’s why Adobe and the browsers makers gave 3 years to do it again. If done with modern apps and standards, HTML5, yes it should work on mobile devices.

Yes you can convert many aspects of flash to be useful in your website.

Adobe has developed the air product which allows you to use flash to create
content that is compatible with all platforms.

I continue to do all my work in flash and you have the ability to export
your projects 2 Android, iOS as well as Mac OS and windows.

this is not as open as standard as an HTML website but considering most
websites today are created using wordpress in a series of proprietary
plugins or are created using one of these website builders those are
significantly more proprietary in nature.

Nearly all assets from a 10 year old flash website can be repurposed and
exported from the current Adobe animate what was previously flashpro and
used for delivery.

So web-based uses it does not completely replace the need to do some HTML
or PHP in order to deploy the site but that would have been needed for the
previous flash plugin based projects you would have worked with.

so the answer is yes you can make use of all content that has already
residing and has been used by flash!

the flash plugin will no longer exist as of December but the flashpro
platform which has been renamed Adobe animate is an incredibly powerful way
of developing for all platforms.
