Accessibility continues to make important gains across the video games industry–from AAA studios to indie developers. 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 making first accessibility efforts for a game, or augmenting and refining existing procedures, this discussion will focus on what works, what doesn’t, and shed light on the sometimes-confusing spaces in-between.
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.
This is for anyone from any discipline or experience level who has an interest in accessibility for disabled gamers—from students to experienced developers.
