Bits Debate: Mixing It Up Over Remixes and Fair Use | Technology for Disabilities | Scoop.it

"Henshaws College has launched an accessible version of YouTube, which was funded by Jisc through Jisc Advance. It allows people with learning difficulties and disabilities to use this mainstream technology independently.


ACCESS: YouTube simplifies the standard You Tube site making it easier to search and play videos, and allows the use of assistive technologies. It is now publicly available so everyone can benefit from this accessible method."

Tools for assessibility are always welcome. This service provides a way for instructors to use YouTube video and still remain 508 compliant.
