No previous message | Next message →

Vimeo has just announced that their new player has been released. It's in
HTML 5 and the announcement says:

Fully Accessible
We doubled down on accessibility, with full keyboard navigation and WCAG2AA
support, and better support for screen readers.

Closed captions & subtitles support!
Just go to your video’s settings page, upload your caption file, and it
will be available in the player. They’re supported in all desktop players,
Mobile Safari on iOS 7, Chrome on Android tablets, and Kindle Fire, for
now. We’re working hard to bring them to other platforms and devices as
soon as we can.

Full announcement with an example of the player on the page:

Has anyone tried it out?

It worked well when I tested it with VoiceOver on OS X and iOS. It would be great if they’d add a checkbox on their advanced search to filter results that have closed captions.

The improvements are to be applauded, but one major problem is the lack of visible keyboard focus on the player controls. Until that’s fixed, I wouldn’t say it has “full keyboard navigation and WCAG2AA support”.

I wonder if there are variations by platform on the focus. I can see focus
on Mac/Chrome, but it's not as strongly highlighted as I'd think it needs
to be.
