The “Most Accessible Media Player on the Web”?

A couple of weeks ago, a couple of tweets (maybe RTs of @ODIgovuk?) alerted me to the release of the ODI (HMG’s Office for Disability Issues) (flash based – how accessible is that?!*) accessible media player (see the player), which “supports customisable subtitles, audio description, British Sign Language, downloadable PDF transcripts”. In support of its credentials, the host website sports the RNIB’s Surf Right badge of approval.

*Ah: “Built in Flash, it provides full keyboard support for people who can’t use a mouse, is extremely well labelled, making all of it’s functions clear to screen reader users, and for those who don’t have Flash in their browsers, provides the same information in alternative formats.”
