[Plugin: Audio Player] Accessibility help for visually challenged (3 posts)

    I love Audio Player ... great way for me to post daily podcasts. Recently I received an email from someone who is legally blind. She uses screen reading software. She said that she has trouble "accessing graphical buttons" like the "play" button referred to in my blog posts when a new podcast episode is available (example).

    I'm wondering if you know of anything I can do to make the Audio Player more accessible to folks like my visitor. Is there any tagging I can do or something? I would be most grateful for your help.

    I am not familiar with accessibility standards for website, but I am going to start looking in to them today.

    I noticed you already have a 'no-flash' content that (if flash is present) is replaced by the playing applet.

    Here's an idea: Put your "click here to download the file" in that tag, this will nicely fall back on screen-reader software as they don't have flash.

    I need to warn you, flash and accessibility don't mix well. I was hoping for HTML5 to pick that up, but the codec support is a train wreck (no single codec across 4 major browsers).

    Hope this helps,

    Hello, would someone be able to help me with this problem please? I uploaded WordPress Audio Plugin. The plugin doesnt show up unless I put this code in the footer <?php wp_footer(); ?>

    the player works when i put the code in the footer but then I get this error message in the footer. Does anyone know how I can get rid of this fatal error message? Please help! Ive been dealing with this for two days

    Warning: call_user_func_array() [function.call-user-func-array]: First argument is expected to be a valid callback, 't' was given in

    my site is http://www.randomtandem.com

    but I took that code out of the footer because I dont want that error message on my site.

    thanks in advance for your help :-)
