  1. PowerPoint presentation
  2. Flash video player (zipped for download) - This file is the published Flash application. Note that the appropriate accessibility features may not yet be enabled on this player so that the controls will be read by a screen reader.
  3. Flash video player source (.fla file) - Created with Flash MX 2004 Professional.
  4. Sample configuration file (XML file in text format) - Required for the video player. Copy code and paste into a file called "captions.xml". Save in the same location as the .swf file. Replace parameters in the appropriate places with your own.

Please note that this version of the video player may not be accessible to screen readers for the controls. I'm still working on that.
