accessible youtube player that has a "show captions" option

hey all,

I am working on a site which will be hosting a bunch of youtube movies.
They will be captioned and transcribed.

The problem is that the youtube player is not keyboard accessible and I
haven't been able to find one that lets me access the "cc" link to show
the captions.

If I enter this movie

into the easy youtube player

I can't get at the captions. If I embed the youtube player I can use my
mouse to click on the captions but I can't tab to the player.

Is there a keyboard accessible player out there that can be embedded in
a page that has access to captions?
