  • Hello,

    I’m using your YouTube embed / YouTube gallery plugin. It’s a great plugin and I have appreciated having it available as a plugin. I’m having to address some accessibility issues with my site and noticed there are some accessibility issues with the plugin. Can you tell me if these are addressed in the paid version of the plugin and if so, I will consider upgrading. I believe I am using the free version?

    Here are the issues I’m seeing.

    • None of the iframe embeds have a title, e.g., title=”Video”.
    • Videos aren’t keyboard navigable. I can navigate to the first video at the top of my gallery, but I’m unable to navigate to other videos below the top video.
    • With the exception of the first video, none of the other videos are visibly identified as having keyboard focus, that is, they aren’t highlighted so I can see that the video is selected when tabbing through the videos with my keyboard. They also aren’t being listed in the browser status bar.
    • These are the specific references to the accessibility issues I’m experiencing in the WCAG 2.0 Level A & AA guidelines.

      WCAG 2.0 Level A 4.1 COMPATIBLE
      4.1.2 Name, Role, Value
      iFrames are missing a description, e.g., title=”video”

      WCAG 2.0 Level A 2.4 NAVIGABLE
      2.4.3 Focus Order
      Order of tabbing
      Ensure that the tabbing order defined on the page is logical. The tab index has a meaningful sequence, the tab index does not interfere with the sequence for the entire page and the sequence for the entire page is meaningful.

      WCAG 2.0 Level AA 2.4 NAVIGABLE
      2.4.7 Focus Visible
      Highlighting elements
      With keyboard navigation it is important that the focused component can be visually identified. If the focused component is not somehow highlighted, the user cannot be sure which component has focus. Make sure that user interface elements, that can receive keyboard focus, are highlighted on focus.

      Thanks for offering such a great plugin.
