|Overview:||Should studios set aside permanent spaces dedicated to game accessibility research, feedback, education, and design? Microsoft has done just that with its Inclusive Technologies Lab. In this talk, Tara and Brannon (Microsoft's Gaming & Disability Community Leads) will discuss the value of a dedicated inclusive technologies space, how the lab was launched, what went right (and not quite right) during the first 6 months of operation, and provide detailed tips and tricks for setting up your own accessibility-centric space.|
