A very rough evaluation is available at
http://www.web2access.org.uk/product/8 but it really needs to be more in
depth for your requirements... yes you can add captioning and put in a
complete transcript and link to audio descriptions. The accessible player is
also a help
ble/ but like all these things it is the amount of work you are willing to
put into the original video and the warnings that need to go out about
accessible Flash media players and how they react in different browsers.

Best wishes E.A.

Hi Athenians,
My question is concerning accessibility features of YOUTUBE and other
social networking tools. We are beginning to use YOUTUBE and need to know
how to make it fully accessible.
Can you use dragon or captioning software-etc?
What is the legal obligation?
