[games_access] GamesCom, GDC-Europe

Hi Thomas,

it is not only the schools.

This is just an idea: Maybe we have to present GA as an iceberg.
(Iceberg: you see only small amount on the surface, the most part is under
the water)

Top: disabled gamers

Then: situational disabled gamers

Then: busy gamer, beginner, silver gamer, ...

Then: game accessibility = usability for gamers

Besides: game accessibility features are often very useful for the
development of motion controlled games,
Special when they adjust everything for the "flow" in the prototype. (game
speed, difficulty, size of figures, ...)

Best regards,

we have seen this happen before although the space given to GA has been good
too some years

I'm working on a project which will establish a game based education in
public upper secondary schools in Sweden, starting in September this year.
My game access agenda is focused on creating an offer the industry can't
refuse: public schools have hundreds (?) of millions of users world wide +
many countries require that schools are accessible. Money talks :)

brief info about the project in Swedish only ( use google translate):

Kind regards,
