    I would like to watch this video about accessibility. Unfortunately the video controls are not accessible. As a screenreader user I see no video and no controls to launch it. Please use an accessible video player. Cfr. e.g. this article: http://www.iheni.com/accessible-media-player-resources/
    I have used JAWS15 and NVDA2015.3 both in combination with IE11 and Firefox. With neither of these combination I was able to launch the video.
