Fun for Everyone: AT for Video Gaming Thursday October 30, 2014 1:30 - 3 PM Eastern Time.
While video games once may have been an youthful exploit to avoid going outside to play, they have now become part of our culture, a way to develop skills, and form friendships and communities. You will hear about the importance of including people with disabilities in the world of gaming and review some assistive technology that can be used to create access for people with mobility disabilities. You will also learn about some access options for hearing, cognitive, and visual disabilities along with tips for which features to look for in video games. Presented by Mark Barlet, Executive Director and Founder, AbleGamers Foundation and Laura Hall, Information Coordinator, Michigan Assistive Technology Program (MATP).
