The lights are on
A series of guidelines have been published to help game developers and publishers make games more accessible to every kind of gamer.
The guide covers three different categories: basic, intermediate, and advanced accessibility, and then is further divided into six additional categories that cover all manner of handicap including general, motor, cognitive, visual, hearing, and speech accessibility. The guide has been published in the interest of making games more open and playable to everyone. They are open to the public and you can check them out here.
If you want to know more about accessibility and video games, you can read some of the work of one of Game Informer's recent interns, Josh Straub. Josh finished up his internship and started a website called D.A.G.E.R.S., which stands for disabled accessibility for gaming entertainment rating system. You can follow Josh's work here.
