#CSUNATC19 Audio: Meet the Author of the Blind Bargains Web Player

We often get asked about the origins of the Blind Bargains web player, so rather than us talk about it, we went straight to the source. J.J. speaks with Terrill Thompson, Technology Accessibility Specialist at the University of Washington, to learn about the development of Able Player including some of the advanced techniques used for creating accessible videos including audio-described content. The player is free to use for your website and also works with YouTube videos.
Terrill also hosts an annual accessible NCAA tournament bracket which you can fill out and use to follow the tournament and compete against your friends.
