Making video games accessible to the disabed
The NGO SpecialEffect lets disabled people play video games just like anyone else. The team makes personalised solutions (toe-operated controllers, eye or eyebrow movement commands) to level the playing field. As well as enjoying games, disabled people can join in social life more easily with their friends or family when they have access to the same activities. The NGO is convinced that playing games gives therapy greater chances of success and builds self-confidence.
