Video Accessibility


YouTube has two video players, an HTML5 player and a Flash player. The HTML5 player is much better in terms of accessibility, but it is usually not the default. To force all embeded videos from YouTube to use the HTML5 player for you, visit the YouTube HTML5 page and hit the request HTML5 button.

If you are viewing our websites on a mobile device—or on a few very modern browsers—the HTML5 player will already be the default.
