The following checklists are intended to guide website managers, developers and content authors on the accessible implementation of Videos. The checklist should be used to ensure WCAG 2.0 compliance of all Videos on the site.
Is the video player accessible (i.e. there are no keyboard traps)?
Can the video player be activated and operated via the keyboard?
Does the video only start at the user request (i.e. by activating it via the keyboard or mouse and not starting automatically)?
If the video starts automatically, is there a website mechanism to pause or stop the video at the start of the page before the video?
Can the video volume be modified?
Can the video volume be modified with the mouse?
Can the video volume be modified with the keyboard?
If the video is provided as a text alternative is it labelled as such?
Is the video or video alternative available when Flash is disabled?
Is the video functional with style sheets disabled?
Does the video remain in the correct page sequence when style sheets are disabled?
Are links to the video files descriptive?
Can you select a video without causing a change prior to the current focus?
Does the video exclude flashing content which flashes more than three times per second?
Do videos include captions?
Do captions include all dialogue and important sound effects?
Do captions only contain information in the video (i.e.do not contain additional content not in the video)?
Do videos have transcripts?
Is the video transcript link clear?
Does the video transcript provide equivalent information to the video?
Does the video transcript only contain information in the video (i.e. does not contain information that is not included in the video)?
Is the video transcript accessible?
Is the video transcript or a link to the transcript immediately before or after the video?
Is the end of transcript marked if it is on the same page as the video?
Does the video transcript (when on a different page to the video) provide a method of returning back to the original video?
Do interactive transcripts keep track with the video content?
Is the current position in the interactive transcript available when style sheets are disabled?
Can the current position in the interactive transcript be determined without relying on colour (i.e. isn’t marked with colour alone)?
Is the colour contrast of the video captions sufficient?
Do videos have audio descriptions?
