This week we have several articles and videos about people who push past disability boundaries. We’ll show you how people are expressing their personal spaces with mental, physical, and artistic expressions.
Asheley Fiolek is a member of the Red Bull motocross racing team, her deafness doesn’t keep her from tearing up the track and leaving competitors in the dust. Jhamak Kumari Ghimire was recently awarded for her poetry, dizAbled features comic strips from the wheelchair athlete perspective, and two dogs in wheelchairs bring new hope to patients in Texas.
Watch videos with Yahoo! Web Player
We’ve also added a new feature to our weekly list of articles. You no longer need to leave the page to view the videos. We are using the new Yahoo! Web Player to automatically insert play buttons next to any link for YouTube movies. Selecting a play button will open a new player on the page.
The web player is accessible and you can control it via the keyboard.
- Press control + shift + space to start a video. Try it right now.
- Move to next video: shift + arrow right
- Move to previous video: shift + arrow left
- Adjust the volume up: shift + arrow up
- Adjust the volume down: shift + arrow down
Unfortunately closed captions are not displayed at this point. We are hoping the next version of the web player will restore closed captions. In the meantime, you can visit Youtube to enjoy the Blind Film Critic with captions.
