Accessibility of JW Player

JW Player previously had a webpage which discussed the accessibility of their media player, however I cannot find any details about this now.

I am particularly interested if JW Player or anyone else has tested the player against WCAG 2.0 requirements.

At this time, I don’t believe we are WCAG 2.0 compliant. However, we will be adding keyboard controls in our next version 6.9. If you’d like, I can send over a beta to test. Just let me know!

Hi Andrew,

I was looking for a way to use the keyboard shortcuts with my 6.8 version of JWPlayer and I red your reply. I don't understand because I thought that this option has already been released in the 6 version as it is written here :

I red all the added features from the JWPlayer 6.0 to 6.8 and the keyboard shortcut are not in the list but I don't find the 6.9 future features lists.

Here :
Ethan talks about plugins to do this but the urls are no longer availiable... and the plugin does not work with the v5+.
I don't find a way to reach a v6 plugin directory on your website. Could you help me on that point please ?
