This session will cover the barriers people with disabilities face when playing mainstream games and the solutions that make gaming accessible to everyone. We often focus on what it takes for someone to be productive, but being productive alone doesn’t lead to a satisfying life. Everyone needs recreational and social outlets and for many today, that comes in the form of playing games with their friends. Whether it’s enjoying the feeling of piloting your own aircraft over the american countryside on a PC flight simulator, or participating in the latest quests with your friends on your favorite console game, or even sitting down with the family to enjoy a board game, there are solutions to make these experiences accessible for everyone. This session will leave you with the knowledge necessary to rise above the obstacles that come with wanting to participate in a part of our culture that has permeated our society now more than ever.
