A couple of weeks ago, I attended Aidis’ pilot of its first disability gaming day EVER! The event was hosted at Trafford Disability Activity Network. This was a really exciting opportunity, not only for me but also for the game testers. I thought I’d go along and write a diary about my day working with everyone. Mission: Accepted!

There’s been a lot of new developments happening in the world of gaming lately, and I thought it would be fun to do a bit of a roundup of the latest news. I also wanted to see if there was anything new that could potentially help people with disabilities – after all, technology is changing and improving all the time. Ready? Here we go!
I’m about to finish my time at University so I’ve been looking into getting a proper, full-blown, ADULT job! Scary as it may seem, it can definitely be made easier for those of us who might find it a little trickier because of different disabilities. I wanted to write a blog about how I’ve started to explore the transition from student to professional life, and the tools I use to make it more accessible to me.
I’ve been wondering if there are any useful developments in technology that can be helpful for people with disabilities. It’s often the things that are not designed for people with disabilities specifically, that can help us as disabled people, to get the most out of our everyday lives. During my research, I found out about Computex – an annual technology show in Taiwan. I decided to blog about some of the devices that were demonstrated there and how they could potentially help the disability community.
