Microsoft believes gaming is for everyone. To that end, we have developed a set of accessibility guidelines to apply to our first party titles. This session will be the public’s first look at these guidelines, how they were developed, and how they have been and will continue to be implemented. Also discussed will be Xbox Game Studios testing methodologies as they relate to them and what developers should think about when designing their own studio or title-specific accessibility guidelines.

  • An overview of Microsoft's Xbox Accessibility Guidelines and how they were created
  • How Microsoft's Xbox Accessibility Guidelines are tested
  • Tips and trick for creating a game or studio-specific set of accessibility guidelines.
