The developer of Apex legends, electronic arts, has added accessibility features to their game which is coming to Ios soon. They have one feature which allows text in the chat to be converted to voice. This feature is obviously for people who cannot see the text.
You maybe asking, what is apex legends?
Apex legends is a battle royale type game, where you are trying to be the last person standing. The difference is, you play as heroes and you also have teammates. There is no solo mode. In my opinion, this can be easily made accessible. When you first start the game, there should be an option where you can turn on a self voicing mode. This would be used to start a new game, and even sign in with your account if you want to.
Then, before the game starts, there should be a voice that says that people with vision impairments should play with headphones on. The headphones would be used to here where other players are.
Since killing your teammates is not possible, there should be no problems there. There should be your standard controls, swiping up to head straight, swiping down to go backwards, and so on. These gestures would be used to navigate. For those, they could do something similar to what a blind legend did. Where you hold the gestures to continue walking in that direction.
I’ve already contacted the developer about this, and they said that they could do it! Now I know what you might be thinking, the game relies on graphics! How are you going to be able to play without seeing it? The answer is the game does not rely on graphics completely.
If you have any more ideas on how Apex legends could be made even more accessible, please post them here.
