This week’s post is another instalment of our Disabled Voices Online series, where I interview disabled online creators about their experience of online content creation, accessibility and raising awareness about their disabilities. For this week’s post, I have interviewed E who runs the blog Deafie Blogger.

My name is Alex, and I am a blind student volunteering with the Aidis Trust today as part of my work experience provided by my school. Aidis have asked me to review a game called “A Blind Legend”.
It’s always good to get a fresh perspective on life. This week we have enjoyed having two young people on work experience, one chap who is blind in London and one chap in Stockport who has no disability. We thought it interesting to get feedback from both as one young man would trial a game designed to be played by someone with his disability, whilst we would help the other young man to understand what to look for in a game to make it either accessible out of the box, or how it can be adapted to become accessible.
Despite all the problems in our world, we are very fortunate in that technology is continually developing and is having a very positive impact on peoples’ lives. So, I thought I’d share with you a couple of the exciting disability related technology stories that have been making headlines in the news recently.
