Accessibility continues to make important gains across the video games industry–from AAA studios to indie developers. Yet each step forward brings with it new opportunities for further accommodations that will enhance experiences, generate appeal, and include a larger number of gamers. Whether you and your company are making your first accessibility efforts for your current game, or augmenting and refining existing procedures, our discussion will focus on inclusive design processes and how that can be enabled at workplaces with tools, workflows, roles, and collaborations.

Takeaway

Attendees will gain an understanding of the current state of accessibility in the games industry, learn about and contribute to ways in which it can be pushed forwards, and find like-minded contacts to collaborate with.

Intended Audience

This roundtable will be appropriate for anyone from any discipline or experience level who has an interest in accessibility for disabled gamers and game developers.
