Thanks Sarah,

I have tried to find an example of an embedded youtube video that uses
Nomensa which is keyboard accessible with a variety of browsers - it would
be great if you could point me to one.

Roger,

 

Have you looked at Nomensa's video player? It has HTML5 support, and can use
either local video files or ones hosted at YouTube or Vimeo. They have made
it available as open source.

Hi

 

As part of some ongoing research into the accessibility of YouTube material
that is embedded into web pages, can anyone point me to an example of an
embedded HTML5 YouTube video that has a player which is keyboard accessible.
By keyboard accessible, I mean at least the ability to do the following with
the keyboard: Start and stop the player; move forward and back through the
video; mute and control the audio levels; turn captions on and off, and
change the size of caption text.

 

Or, examples of embedded youtube video players that you feel are reasonably
keyboard accessible. I have been looking at the new controls developed by
Vision Australia and they look pretty good, but I was wondering if there is
anything else.

 

I know there are example of accessible video players that don't use embedded
youtube material, but since so many people now use this method of putting
video material onto their sites I am specifically interested in seeing how
to make the embedded youtube material more keyboard accessible.

 

Thanks,

Roger
