We can work it out: increasing accessibility in the video games industry

Research output: Non-textual formWeb publication/site

Abstract

In October 2022, the RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People) hosted a pioneering two-day Accessible Gaming Symposium in conjunction with Abertay University, Dundee. Various topics were discussed, including how to design video games for gamers with visual impairments, the development of learning resources for practitioners, and best practice techniques to ensure games are playable for those with varying degrees of sight loss. The key takeaway from the symposium: the games industry needs to work together to improve the accessibility of games for a range of disabilities and needs.
