Accessible Action Games!
Who says Flash cannot be interactive, fun and accessible at the same time?
At DoodleDoo we make educational Flash games 508 accessible to children with a disability. We come up with creative solutions for Flash games that generally people think can't be made accessible, such as jigsaw puzzles, coloring pages and adventure games for visually impaired users, and whack-a-mole and other mouse-dependant games for mobility impaired users.
This session will show some of our accessible Flash games, and the research and creative programming that made them possible.
