The Consumer Electronics Show: Is Virtual Reality a Thing of the Future?
I’ve recently been reading about the Consumer Electronics Show, an event that took place in Las Vegas very recently. In 2014, the hype for new technology was geared towards wearables (see my previous blog if you want to find out more!). However, there is a new wave of interest for something called Virtual Reality, which featured heavily at the 2015 event. I decided to give my take on what VR is, what it isn’t – and whether it has the potential to help disabled people either now or in the near future.
I thought I’d take my chances and delve into the world of games that are designed specifically for blind and visually impaired people. I wanted to look at different websites/games, and rate them on playability, if they were easy to find and whether I would play them again.
Now that many computer games cannot be played unless you have access to an online gaming platform, I thought I’d continue on from my blog about Steam, which was somewhat compatible with JAWS, and write about the accessibility of Origin and Uplay.
