Re: keyboard access to cc button on YouTube player

I've done some googling and trial and error but there doesn't seem to be
keyboard access to the CC option on the YouTube player. I've tried the tab
key and looked for other hotkeys but to no avail. I seem to have better
luck when using a screenreader (perhaps because of the off-screen model and
the different behavior of keystrokes with JAWS or NVDA). Anyway know of any
hotkeys or ways to access the CC option in the YouTube player? (That works
with and without a screenreader).
