This plugin hasn’t been updated in over 2 years. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



This plugin was custom made for a company for use with screen readers. It allows the user to embed YouTube videos in a post or page, which is controllable with the tab- and enter key, or via Screen readers for sighted or blind people.


  1. Upload the folder accessibleyoutube to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
  2. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress
  3. Use the shortcode [accessibleyoutube] and its attributes or use the small AccessibleYouTube-popup in the graphical editor
  4. Does it work? Please let me know! 🙂
