Blind Mortal Kombat player demonstrates how important accessibility is

0

Something most of us take for granted

Ross Minor is blind, but that doesn't stop him from kicking ass in Mortal Kombat X as demonstrated. In the video above, Minor walks us through his thought process and how he manages to play without sight by utilizing sound effects. Impressive! He certainly can combo better than I can. 

Gaming accessibility is something most of us never have to think about, but developers are starting to take notice. Many games now launch with colorblind modes, subtitles, and font sizing options standard, but there is always room for improvement.

Luckily there are also charities such as The AbleGamers that help spread awareness about making gaming more accessible while also working with players to get them custom controllers if needed.
