Video Accessibility


Better video accessibility everywhere.

Display video transcripts next to embeds, toggle between two videos, and display a site-wide statement all in a single block.


  • Display a scrollable video transcript next to a video embed. Upload a plain text file transcript or create one in admin.
  • Switch the embed player to display a second video. Ideal for displaying audio-described and non-audio-described versions of a video.
  • Display a site-wide statement next to each embed.
  • Responsive one or two column layout
  • Intuitive block that supports two videos and multiple sidebar panels
  • Customizable colors and fonts – block inherits existing site styles


Improve site-wide video accessibility by

  • Displaying transcripts next to embeds
  • Providing the ability to switch between two videos in the same embed (which allows for seamless display of audio-described and non-audio-described video)
  • Presenting a site-wide message (which could be your site’s accessibility statement) VideoObject

I backed up my site. Then installed the plugin. It was easy enough to get started. The video accessibility area is added to wordpress settings menu. You will need a YouTube API key but the plugin gives you a link to where and how to get that. Once I punched it in I was able to get started. Accessibility matters and this plugin made is SO EASY. My site is not able to reach a whole new audience, and it looks great too.
