I’m coming across Kaltura video players with the following ARIA attributes:
aria-labelledby=”Player kaltura_player_28132631″ aria-describedby=”The Kaltura Dynamic Video Player”
I believe these are default values. It’s my understanding that both
aria-describedby should reference ID’s in the same DOM containing the actual label or description. They can reference multiple DOM elements, so
Player kaltura_player_28132631 is technically correct, however, I don’t find ID’s named
kaltura_player_28132631 (or relevant ID) doesn’t contain anything that would reflect a label.
I’m wondering if I’m overlooking something, or if this is a bug.
Aside from that, screen readers don’t seem to pick up on any ARIA attributes on iframes. A solution can be to add an ARIA role tag of “presentation” to the iframe as suggested here: http://ux.stackexchange.com/a/69891
