Accessible Web-Based Music Application: rAdio
rADIO goals can be found here.
WHAT IS rAdio?
rAdio is an accessible web-based music application that has multiple accessible features including: playback navigation, HTML5/ARIA compliance, shortcut keys, large buttons, and large text. It is accessible to both the blind and people with low vision. It also has all of the normal features and design of a non-accesible player.
Shortcut Keys: Press the following keys on your keyboard to perform their associated rAdio player funtion.
* space : play/pause * left : previous track * right : next track * up : increase volume * down : decrease volume * f : seek foreward 10 seconds * d : seek backward 10 seconds
WHAT TECHNOLOGIES DOES rAdio UTILIZE?
WHAT CHANGES WERE MADE TO THE RDIO PLAYER
The RDIO player has shortcut keys for play/pause, previous, next, and playlist. However, it does not have shortcut keys for volume control or seek functions. The RDIO player is not Aria Compliant, and the screan reader could not easily read it.
We created the user friendly rAdio interface and its unique design.
