SpecialEffect has always been involved in making games accessible to gamers. They have been loaning equipment and specialized game technology to gamers with disabilities that have been created/ modified to suit their needs, allowing them to continue to enjoy video games. For example, gamers with cerebral palsy can use eye controllers to control movement in the video game just by using eye movement/ blinking. Watch the video for a demo:
SpecialEffect has also created a website especially for gamers with disabilities at http://www.gamebase.info to reach a wider audience. The website consists of groups and forums that allow SpecialEffects and users to share information, knowledge and experiences about accessible games, devices, gaming platforms, and technologies.
Their video collection is very impressive, with more than 45 videos that show SpecialEffect’s equipment and technology in use.
