Hey Lynsey,

That's a wonderful initiative! Any chance that you guys are planing to
add a tag for games that are Deafblind Accessible as well?

Cheers,
Mathias Nordvall

> Hello all!

>

> IndieCity, our indie games portal, has added basic accessibility tags alongside the PEGI-style content descriptors:

> At the moment we've got icon tags for:

>

> Colour Blind Accessible

> Deaf Accessible

> Epilepsy Warning

> Remappable Controls

>

> Developers can also add their own tags. I'm hoping to push the visibility of it a bit more so that people know it's there, but I'm quite pleased it's gone live and is alongside the other content descriptors - it's a shame that PEGI don't do the same with boxed products.
