Re: Fortnite

Ok general point to people in this thread, and I'm going to be blunt here; you're causing damage.

If you want to talk about mechanical reasons why fortnite couldn't be accessible, fine. I happen to agree, see reply #6.

If you want to talk about ways that games in general can be made more accessible, wonderful.

But if you want to talk about how no FPS could ever be accessible (fortnite is not a FPS game, and I can forward you videos of gamers without any sight at all playing mainstream FPS games) or talk about how no mainstream developer will ever care about accessibility, not only are you wrong, but by even saying that you are harming likelihood of accessibility work being done.

These forums are frequently showcased in industry conference talks as a great place for developers interested in blind accessibility to learn more. Being confronted with "not possible" / "never going to happen, devs don't care" is really not helpful. If anything it is a self fulfilling prophecy.

The are advocates gaining traction. Blind gamers being invited into studios. Developers who really do care.

Results are hard to see yet due to the lengthy periods needed to make mainstream games, but please please do not sabotage all those people's good work.
