Accessible close-caption player with toggle for CC
I just learned than Camtasia Studio 8 is completely inaccessible to a screen reader. TechSmith mentioned that they never tested for this, amazing! We have found an HTML 5 player that is accessible, but it does not have the ability to allow close-captions to be toggled on and off. I wonder if any of you have encountered this situation before and found a solution. The options appear to be:
1) Find an accessible player that can take a separate close-caption file and allow toggling.
2) Find a company that better addresses this issue.
3) Come to an unacceptable compromise (YouTube, captions that are always on)
I would greatly appreciate any insights you may have as our university will require all students to view the video tutorials.
