Topic : The Future of Video Player Accessibility


There’s no denying that online video makes up an increasingly important part of our everyday lives: online video traffic is expected to make up 79 percent of all consumer Internet traffic in 2018. There’s also no denying that individuals with disabilities represent a growing percentage of the population: in the 2010 U.S. Census, 19% of the population had a disability, a number that is only increasing with medical advancements and an aging society.

For software developers, this means keeping pace with technological improvements that accommodate all users—which is not easy. In this webinar, developers from YouTube/ Google, JW Player, Video.js, and University of Washington will come together to discuss video player accessibility. Taking a look at their different players, we will discuss the current capabilities, known shortcomings, and plans for future development. This webinar will provide a forum for major developers to take a top-level look at the future potential of video player accessibility.
