Considerations for Time-Based Media

Media players

Use a media player that meets accessibility guidelines such as:

  • Keyboard accessible – Some users cannot or do not use a mouse. All functionality must be available by keyboard only.
  • Visible focus indicator – A focus indicator is the means of visually identifying which interactive element is receiving focus. This is important for people not using a mouse.
  • Audio controls are available to pause or stop the audio, or to control audio volume independently from the overall system volume.
  • Controls to pause, stop, or hide certain moving, blinking or scrolling information or auto-updating information.
