The accessible YouTube interface has been designed according to the W3C Web Content Accessibility Guidelines, with an implementation of WAI-ARIA to further improve access for people using assistive technology products. Features include high contrast, simple sorting of search results, full keyboard navigation and the removal of the ‘instant playback’ feature.
Further information can be found at the YouTube accessible interface website. Additional accessibility information relating to YouTube clips, including the recently introduced automated captions feature, can be found in the online media section of the Media Access Australia website.
