Article discusses accessibility features that allow people with disabilities to play video games. Mindmaker, Incorporated has produced a voice recognition engine called Game Commander, which has proven to be an effective solution for people with disabilities. The application was designed to integrate into game engines that have time-critical requirements, such as flight simulators. A game called Terraformers is also described, which was designed to be accessible to people with visual disabilities. Players utilize the game’s advanced audio interface, which links people who are blind or have low vision with the game’s three-dimensional graphics. Implications for future game designs are discussed.
