Topic: White Paper published
A white paper entitled Gaming on a Collision Course -Averting significant revenue loss by making games accessible to older Americans was published last week by 7-128 Software's Eleanor Robinson and Stephanie Walker from Able Gamers Foundation. It highlights the graying of gamers and the fact that disability is not distributed evenly across the age range. Over 40% of the over 65 year old population reported one or more disability. This means that over the next few years, the baby boomer population bulge will be over 65. Many of them will be unable to play the games they like unless accessibility accommodations are built into them.

This may be an ideal opportunity to encourage game developers to include some accessibility accommodations into their games.
