Accessible Gaming Campaigner Gareth Garett

Well done to Gareth Garett, who has successfully campaigned to improve accessibility on EA’s Dead Space 2.

Gareth has cerebral palsy and uses his chin to play games using adapted controllers or a mouse. He was frustrated to find his new game would not allow the controls to be reconfigured so that he could play more easily.

After posting his problem on a gamers forum his message found its way to the game developers and they are now working on a patch to fix it.

More info can be found at the One Switch game accessibility blog and at The Escapist gaming magazine
