No I have exactly the same problems. Udin Jaws 14 Windows 7 and IE 11.

I think the BBC have messed up accessibility on the site again.

Hi Henny thanks to you and the others who have replied on this one.  I 
accessed the Iplayer quite easily and found the link to audio described 
content. I could not find any categorisation between signed and audio 
described.  I seemed to have a list of audio described programmes, then 
when I clicked on Crimson Fileld which I wanted to watch I got the 
Crimson Field page up but could find nothing to click on to play it.  Am 
I supposed to sign in first or am I missing something.
