Game Accessibility Talk from #GAConf live now!

Hey folks!
I’m happy to report that my talk at the Game Accessibility Conference, the first ever Game Accessibility Conference, is now live. This talk proved to be extremely important, as I am, no kidding, still feeling its fallout today. Listen as I discuss blind game accessibility with a bunch of industry folks, and maybe, just maybe, entertain them a little bit along the way. You can watch the video below.

Game Accessibility Conference 2017

I am extremely excited and happy to announce that I will be a speaker at the Game Accessibility Conference being held in San Francisco in 2017. The conference takes place on February 27, and will cover game accessibility of all types. While I will speak on behalf of the blind gamers out there, there will be representation for many other disabilities as well, from the gamers themselves to the developers who have taken steps to make their games more accessible. Find out more at www.gaconf.com and, if you’re able to, maybe consider attending. If you’re reading this and you’re in the game industry, we absolutely encourage you to attend, because game accessibility is important, and making sure the widest audience possible can play your game should be important. I look forward to February, and hope to meet some of you there.

Guest Blog Alert!

Hi folks!
Just wanted to tell the world that I did a guest blog for the Massachusetts Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired. The article of course, was all about blind gaming! Its aim is more exposure. Exposure to both blind people who don’t realize video games are a possibility, and sighted people who, well, don’t realize the exact same thing. The link to the article is below! Enjoy!

New Spam Blocker!

Hey guys!  Misty here and I know Brandon hasn’t updated in a long time.  I’m gonna kick him in the butt about that.  Anyway, I’m still messing around here.  This site gets an insane amount of spam.  I’ve installed a new spam blocker.  So feel free to test it by leaving comments here for me.  If you have any trouble with it, please let me know and I’ll find another one.  It’s a priority of mine to always find an accessible solution for a problem!

Accessibility in Games: An Interview with Brandon Cole now live!

Hi folks!
Quick news post here to link to an interview I did for a web site called Pop Culture Uncovered. They talk about just about everything pop culture and geek-related, including games, and they found me. Specifically, a writer of theirs named Alex Krefetz found me, and interviewed me. Here, just for you, is a link to that interview. It is my hope that others outside the blind community see this interview, and take what I say to heart.
