How we use switches to replace button presses

If you’re finding some or all of the buttons on your controller or keyboard difficult to reach or press, take a look at Joe’s latest video on our Game Access Blog. He’ll take you through some of the technology we’re currently using to provide alternatives here at SpecialEffect.

In Using Switches to Access Button Presses, Joe talks about some of the most frequently-used accessibility switches we have in our locker at the moment and the importance of getting the mounting right. If you’re looking for alternative ways to press a button in your gaming, this is a great place to start. 

Our Game Access Blog is packed with tech knowledge and lessons we’re learning every day from our work with disabled gamers.
