Overview: When President Obama signed the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA) into law in 2010, he said it guaranteed, "...equal access, equal opportunity, and equal respect for every American." Games need to adhere to the law, and this session is here to help you understand how to best do that. While AbleGamers can provide expertise on the gaming industry, Level Access is the expert in accessibility, and together they will break down the CVAA in understandable terms.
