Accessible to whom?
Deaf - IE4 with Windows Media Player supports closed captioning (with user
selectable format schemes and mulitple language support):
Blind - Provide both a regular and an audio-described version of the video.
Microsoft is working on ways to make AD as easy to do as captioning but we
are not quite there yet.

Subject: Videos & Web Pages

Here is a question that my girlfriend asked me:  How do I put a video on my
page so that it will be accessible.  I told her I didn't know as I would
never use one.  But the person she is doing a page for wants one.  I told
her that it could make her site un-accessible if it didn't work right and
that it will not work on all browsers. (As I know nothing about putting
videos on a page, I hope this information was correct.)  My question for
this listserv is:
Is there a way to put a video on a page so that it will be accessible?
I thank you for your time and consideration on this matter.
