Not sure what campuses out on the list are utilizing Kaltura as their media server for LMS video content. But, if you are using Kaltura, is your campus (or any faculty) using the Interactive Video Quiz Module for course content? And if so, how are you advising its use regarding accessibility issues.
While we are able to ensure the video portion is accurately captioned (either manually or fee based), my concern is the use of on screen quiz questions and other "textual" content displayed within the video that is not accessible to screen or text readers. Not to mention the ability of the user to "interact" with the content to select answers and advance via buttons, etc. While adding narration of the text on screen would help, it's not a complete solution.
I understand Kaltura is working on making this tool and it's player accessible, but in the current state, it is not.

Just would like feedback on if it's being used "anyway" or if your campus has made a decision to NOT use it until it is accessible.
