AJ Ryan Game Accessibility Slides Now Available

AJ Ryan was one of our speakers at Vector 16, and while we weren’t able to capture the audio in his room, he has been kind enough to offer us his presentation slides for his discussion on Game Accessibility.

AJ started Inclusive Games so that gamers that require accessibility options, like himself, can be represented in the industry while having fun experiences one can expect with any great video game. When he was younger, games without accessibility options frustrated him. As we move into a new era of video games, he’s going to make sure accessible gaming is a part of it.


You can see and download the PDF version of his slides here. You can also find more about AJ on twitter at @ONLYUSEmeFEET.
