Captions make video accessible and more importantly: discoverable to search. Learn how we're live captioning Google I/O with a new open source gadget, discover caption features in the YouTube Data API based on speech recognition, and find out more about WebVTT, a new format to help broadcast TV subtitling make the leap to HTML5 and the Web.
Providing a basic HTML site used to be the best way to make sure your content was accessible to all users. But times have changed, and now you can use HTML5 techniques to provide an experience that's just as rich and interactive for people who use assistive technology. The emphasis of this talk will be on techniques that work today in the latest browser versions. Techniques covered will include proper use of ARIA along with focus management and keyboard navigation.
