Hi, Dawn. Of the three you mention, I've had the opportunity to do some research on and see some demonstration of Kaltura, and their accessibility appears pretty good. Everything, including their players, is built on HTML5 (no Silverlight, no Flash); they encourage captioning as part of their wider searchability marketing; and everything I've seen so far is keyboard-accessible. They say they will have a good Descriptive Audio solution in place in the near future (next 90 days, I believe). I haven't gotten to play in a demo space yet, but what I've seen and read so far seem very promising.

Hi all,

The University of Arizona is in the process of selecting a digital asset management system. A few examples include, but are not limited to, Kaltura, OpenText, and Adobe Experience Manager.

Does anyone have any information about accessibility of this type of system?
