Accessibility Symbols

As we close out Disability Awareness Month 2020, you may not realize how many people enjoy the gaming hobby and have disability-related challenges. As a caregiver, I experience it and am sensitive to the need for accessible games. So, if you have family or friends with challenges, are a game designer developing new games, a publisher looking at games to possibly release, a reviewer of tabletop games, or a crafter who offers accessible accessories and furnishings for games, then here are some individuals and companies to help you learn more about accessibility and gaming. I hope these sources of accessibility and gaming might help you find or create products that are more accessible and thus available for more people to enjoy.

Wheelchair Charioteer
So what is a Wheelchair Charioteer? It is someone with such great heart they willingly offer themselves as a guide and servant to a friend or family member in a wheelchair who desires to enjoy a convention or event. This is a small ministry I perform at gaming events I attend.
