Version 2.0
We had many complaints and technical issues with our previous solution, including users with physical challenges such as blindness.

We changed the site to a more standardized implementation focusing on:
Accessibility
Performance &
Compatibility

It needed to work for everyone and not only those with high end devices,
it needed to load fast as possible and be compatible with as many users.
The background player is the most notable feature lost,
however you can use the ‘Play in Window’ feature to have something closer to it.

Improve Speed of the Site
