What will be covered

In this course, you will be introduced to video game accessibility. This will include a history of video game accessibility, current trends, and leading examples from both the AAA and indie scenes.  

The examples will illustrate how to make video games more accessible, with both hardware and software considerations. At the same time, the course will evangelise the importance of game accessibility. 

This will be done by providing different personas, how they apply to game accessibility, and how the decisions made by game designers and developers can empower or potentially exclude them. 

The course will end with signposting to best-in-class resources and events, where you can dive deeper into video game accessibility and become a subject matter expert.
