How to make games more accessible

In this case I will focus on online games and I'd like to proffer a few suggestions.

  1. First make sure that the website where the online game is placed can be easily accessed by a blind person.
  2. Make sure that your website is easy to navigate. That is, that the blind player can find the desired game without having to go through too much difficulty.
  3. If you are using a security code to allow players to enter then you need to make sure that the code can be entered by a blind person. In short, that if you use a captcha code that a blind person would be able to hear what the code is and that they could easily enter it.
  4. If you use a process of a username and password that these fields can be easily accessed by a blind person.
  5. And most importantly, that your game has sounds and voices to enable the blind player to participate fully without having to ask for sighted assistance.

So how do you make sure that you can accomplish all of the above? Probably best to engage a blind gamer to test your website and game.
