Hi Rosemarie,

Both are good products. I used AblePlayer and they have just updated it (I
think the announcement was official at CSUN) to version 3.

I love Able Player, but at the time I used it mobile was still a bit
problematic. That has now changed from what they said for this newest

I recently tested Able (not the newest one) with Dragon and it worked well
overall, which was nice.

The other product is great too, and may work well for your project.

For me, I liked Able because you could add sign language, audio description
and a rolling text transcript with video description. I also liked the
chapter option. I just liked the set up better for the project I was
working on. Both are good to use and in my view some of the best for HTML 5
