If you are a regular user of YouTube, you will already have come to the realization that it can be overwhelming to try and find videos for instructional purposes. Unless you have a specific video in mind, it can be a challenging task to try and find what you are looking for, due in part to the layout of the website. I recently read a blog post that had information on an accessible YouTube searching tool. Check out http://accessyoutube.org.uk for an easy-to-navigate web tool. The search bar is enlarged in size, search results are displayed in an organized array, and all of the same YouTube content is brought forth once the search terms have been entered. Accessible buttons appear once you have selected a video, allowing users with low-vision or those requiring a more organized display to easily search and view videos.
