With its efforts, RNIB is highlighting the growing need for a more accessible gaming industry that considers the needs of players with sight loss. Game developers have the potential to make their games more accessible in a number of ways, such as by offering mods or retrofitting a game post-release. By doing so, video game developers have the potential to not only increase the inclusivity of their games but also tap into a potential market of players with sight loss who are eager to engage with the gaming community.
RNIB and Twitch are on a mission to promote a culture of diversity and inclusivity within the gaming industry by making video games more accessible to players with sight loss. RNIB's new initiative uses Twitch streams to simulate what gaming looks like to blind or partially sighted players.
