Disabilities and Gaming - A Barrier that Can Be Surmounted
First of all, forgive the forthright and un-PC title. However you say it, handicapped/handicapable/disabled/disABILITY, etc... I'm going with the clinical definition. With that out of the way for Nuance Nazis, I'm curious about experiences in all 3 forums on disability and gaming. Whether this is a family member's, a dependent's, friend's, someone's story you know very well or your own, I'd like to hear as many as possible. I've done a good geeklist view and there are perhaps less than 10 on this topic and generally focus on the visual impairment or the disability of one solitary person.Recommend
I want to hear them all. Or as many as possible. Are there certain games that are a lot easier for certain disabilities (large printing and vivid colour differentiation is an obvious one for the visually reduced. How about for the colourblind?) How do you adapt games for your deaf daughter? How does your son with a learning disability have the game modified, perhaps shapes or components changed to assist him in processing with other senses? Examples I just pulled out of the ether, it's just to get the ball rolling.
