Accessibility Portal Puts Players First

A new site has been created to better serve those with medical differences.

Our players are diverse, with a wide variety of needs. Accessibility is the correction of any mismatch between a person and their environment. For those with medical differences, game accessibility means pulling down barriers that are preventing play.

The Accessibility Portal site has been created to better serve these diverse needs. The portal is intended to act as a compliment to official game pages, making it easier to find what accessibility specific features and resources are available across games.

At launch, site has three main features: a forum, a news blog, and game information. The forums are for general discussion, technical support, and feature change requests. The news blog will be used to communicate new features, site updates, employee resource group events, and general accessibility articles. The game information pages may include detailed lists of available accessibility features, text manuals that are screen reader friendly, guides to aid the blind and visually impaired, or other topics requested via forums.

We encourage the community to participate in discussion via forums, so we are more aware of what needs to be addressed. Together, we can work towards a future where everyone can play.

Visit the Accessibility Portal and follow twitter ea_accessible, for more information.
