High Accessibility Player Version

A high accessibility version of the Player is available (generally termed 'Text Player').

This version provides all the webcast and all related static meeting information without the javascript requirements of the Compact Player. If available javascript can still be used to jump to certain agenda points in the meeting. Should controlling the embedded version of the media player be an issue you can launch the webcast in the media player's stand alone version.

Should you wish to use the Text Player as your standard Player you can select to use it by default on the Settings page (see below).

Accessibility Settings

There are a number of settings available to allow you to make viewing webcasts more accessibly for you needs. These options include:

Preferred Player

Currently we offer two versions of our webcast player to allow you to watch webcast with. The standard version of the player, referred to as Compact, requires javascript to be enabled and has automatically updating elements that can cause issues for screen readers. Alternatively there is a high accessibility version (mentioned above) that provides all the information that the Compact version does with the exception of the automatically updating elements.

You can save your settings (Saving settings) to ensure that the version of the player that you would like to use is displayed when viewing a webcast.

Start Webcast Automatically

By default the webcast should start automatically when the Webcast Player is launched. Should you wish the webcast to not start automatically when the player is launched you have the option to turn this functionality off. This allows you to start the webcast when you are ready.

Please be aware that this function is only available for Archived webcasts. For Live webcasts please launch the Webcast Player in plenty of time before the meeting to view any associated information before the webcast transmission begins.

Display Browser Controls in Player

The standard version of the player will open in a small window without the web browser controls or status bar. If you would rather have it open in an unmodified web browser window then you can opt for it to do so.

Further information about these and additional settings can be found on the Settings page.
