Accessible Audio/Video Players

Here is an open source accessible audio/video player that you can use to ensure your multimedia presentations are accessible, but just using this player does not make your presentation fully accessible, adding closed captioning, text-based audio descriptions, transcripts, signlanguage track, etc. must also be included.
