About
My podcast is about game accessibility. I’ll be discussing all types of games and how I think they can be made accessible to the disabled community. I mainly know a lot about blindness and that is because I am light perception blind. But if you are following me and you have a different type of disability don’t worry. I’m not going to leave you out. I’ll have guests on here that have other disabilities so they will be included as well. Please stay tuned and enjoy.
