#4080 new defect

Embedded videos not keyboard accessible once video is playing

See issue reported in the core Trac: https://core.trac.wordpress.org/ticket/41290

Before the video has started playing I can tab to most of the various video controls and clearly see where I am. However, a few seconds after the video has started playing, the controls disappear. It's now impossible to see where keyboard focus is and to easily operate the rest of the controls using a keyboard.

From my testing the problem still persist, at least on WordPress.tv. The video that was originally tested is https://wordpress.tv/2017/05/30/graham-armfield-designing-for-accessibility/

I understand WordPress.tv uses a different player from core, but it would be nice to consider to use a different one as currently it's basically impossible to operate on a video with keyboard only.
