Screen9 takes the next step in the development of their WCAG 2.1 AA video player and platform by launching the new Audio Descriptions feature. With the choice of audio in place, Screen9’s video player is 100 percent compliant with the Web Accessibility Directive (EU) 2016/2102, including the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1 level AA, which is required by law for all websites and video content in the public sector.

“Screen9 is a trusted online video partner to leading enterprises and the public sector. As such, it’s imperative for us to secure that the technology we provide is in line with all regulations ahead of time. With the support for multiple audio tracks and audio description, we have ensured our customers that they are compliant with the Web Accessibility Directive requirements for video content taking effect after this summer”, says Robert Risberg, CEO of Screen9. “Together with our implementation of AI supported transcriptions, speech-to-text, customers will be successful in meeting the WCAG 2.1 AA standard from within the online video platform.”

The new Audio Description feature is available for all customers as of May 20th 2020.
