AbleGamers’ Accessibility Arcade Heading to Chicago Abilities Expo

June 13, 2012 -

The AbleGamers Foundation will demonstrate the AbleGamers’ Accessibility Arcade at Abilities Expo at the Schaumburg Convention Center in Chicago on June 29 to July 1. In its 30th year, the Abilities Expo focuses on improving the lives of people with disabilities, their families, caregivers and healthcare professionals across the country. The Expo features three days of workshops, demonstrations and displays of cutting-edge products and services.

The Accessibility Arcade lets everyone get hands-on time with accessible technology that can enable disabled gamers to play mainstream video game systems and titles. The special showcase has been featured at other events including the Penny Arcade Expo and Microsoft Asia Pacific Development Conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. This time out the showcase is being sponsored by Microsoft.

"We are delighted to be able to showcase the Accessibility Arcade in Chicago," said Mark Barlet, President and Co-Founder of the AbleGamers Foundation. "Thanks to Microsoft for sponsoring our trip to the Windy City, we will be able to show off the latest and greatest assistive technologies the world has to offer to thousands of disabled individuals who might not know they can game."

AbleGamers will be displaying Forza, Rayman, Splosion Man and more. The expo is free and open to the public.
