Accessibility has come a long way in a short time. Advances like the Xbox Adaptive Controller and The Last Of Us 2 have become the norm, and consumer expectations are shifting. Studios across the entire development spectrum are making great strides.

Yet we’re still only at the start, and a long way from where we need to be: with as many people as reasonably possible being able to benefit from all that games have to offer.

So where do we go from here? And are there ways in which we can collaborate on next steps? Join us for a frank and open conversation about the current state of the industry, and how we might all help to push the bar further.

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

Anyone from any discipline or experience level who has an interest in accessibility for disabled gamers.
