>From my quick test, the video player does not seem to give access to these controls without using the mouse. Using the keyboard will allow you to navigate through the webpage, but it doesn't work with the video player.

It pains me to say this, but YouTube may actually work better in keyboard access. You can at least pause/play and seek through the video with the keyboard.
However, with Live Streaming, closed captions will be a challenge. I'm not sure if there is any form of live captioning support on any live streaming platform.

Subject: [Athen] Vimeo Livestream accessibility

Hi all,

I'm investigating Vimeo's Livestream accessibility - does anyone have any information about this? I'm trying to get to the video control options and I either get useless information or I don't have access to the control via keyboard.

Sample video: https://livestream.com/accounts/14770704/events/8377610/videos/181256061<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Flivestream.com%2Faccounts%2F14770704%2Fevents%2F8377610%2Fvideos%2F181256061&data=02%7C01%7Cneal.sorensen%40mnsu.edu%7C5522d5df905b4964f35508d63534106f%7C0c0d13782eaf49c7afa98b40189a1b5c%7C0%7C0%7C636754895065058900&sdata=MQFNRUXgoeJU81UQGsTbZksQ77ElFPfRbM0PpFT75jA%3D&reserved=0>
