EA tapping into accessibility gamersElectronic Arts, one of the world's largest gaming companies, is working on incorporating accessible features in its games. This would help the roughly half a million Canadians and 25 million Americans who have significant vision loss. Karen Stevens, an engineer for Madden NFL, has recently taken on the role of an accessibility advocate for EA. She's the one responsible for the accessibility features in Madden. In her role, she reaches out to visually impaired gamers to find out how to make their games more inclusive."We have brightness and contrast support to help people with low vision. In the same line we also added in a resize feature so icons on the field — like pass icons — catch icons were about twice as tall and twice as wide as an option so people could see them easier," she said. The reason EA is doing this is simple, she said: The company wants people to be able to play the games it makes.
