Video Game Developers Increasingly Working To Create Products More Accessible For People With Disabilities.

August 21, 2020

Bloomberg (8/21, Geraldo) reported more video game developers are working to create products that are “more accessible for people with visual, hearing or motor impairments.” In an attempt to stand out from competition in this respect, there is already a “fierce battle between Sony Corp. and Microsoft Corp. for supremacy in the next generation of video-game consoles.” The “director of community and outreach for AbleGamers Charity, which provides resources for gamers with disabilities, said the evolution is being driven, in part, by social media.” These online “forums such as Twitter and Discord, an audio platform used by gamers, have led to more discussions about accessibility and a greater awareness of the issue among hardware and software makers.”
