If you work in the video game industry, odds are high that you are passionate about the product you create. For gamers, we know how profound an impact the friends we meet, the stories that are told, and the experiences had through gaming can have on our lives. Such a powerful and influential mode of connection and exploration should be available to everyone, regardless of ability.
As a game producer, designer, or developer, what steps are you currently taking to build accessibility into your games? The FCC now mandates through CVAA that any two way communication in video games must be accessible, but this is only the tip of the iceberg.
In this webinar Chief Accessibility Officer Jon Avila covers CVAA requirements for video game accessibility, plus a look beyond the regulatory requirements to explore what it means to make truly accessible gaming experiences. Key topics include:
- CVAA requirements, what’s covered, and how to ensure compliance
- Tips for accessible and inclusive game design
- Case studies of accessible games and their core features
Webinar resources include the recorded presentation, slides, and CART transcript.
