#4080 new defect (bug)

Embedded videos not keyboard accessible once video is playing

See issue reported in the core Trac:

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 The video that was originally tested is

I understand 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.

Just to note here - currently uses VideoPress and embedding those videos requires the current VideoPress player.

It's seeming likely that more videos will be available via Youtube (Youtube channel) which might be a more accessible UI, but for the time being I'm not sure there's anything we can do here other than replace the VideoPress videos with Youtube embeds (which isn't ideal IMHO as we'd have a varied players throughout the site).
