His Royal Highness The Duke of Kent visited The Aidis Trust yesterday (Monday 17th October 2016) to see how it provides vital support for disabled people of all ages, enabling them to benefit from and be empowered by the latest computing technologies.
Aidis has recently held two “gaming days” as part of a new project we’re trying to roll out to local charities in Manchester. We are helping disabled people to play videogames and showing them how they can also use computers. We’re calling it “Everyone Can Game”.
As a bit of a gaming enthusiast, I’m always on the lookout for exciting developments in the world of gaming technology and virtual reality. This week, I found a new game on Kickstarter called Perception that is not only designed for blind and visually impaired people – but also where the protagonist is actually blind herself. This follows on from my playthrough of the demo of “A Blind Legend” so I thought it would be interesting to have a look at this game and find out what it will be about.
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!
