At the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB), we are looking at how accessible video games are for people with different types and levels of sight loss (mild, moderate, severe). The consortium, led by the Royal National Institute of Blind People, is supported by researchers with experience in media and gaming from i2 media research at Goldsmiths, University of London and University of Edinburgh, Moray House School of Education and Sport. We are aiming to understand people’s experiences, needs and preferences in relation to playing games and how enjoyable existing games are to play for people with a vision impairment and how this compares with sighted gamers.
There are three participant categories for the survey:
- Gamers with sight loss
- Non-gamers or ex-gamers with sight loss
- Sighted gamers
We expect most people will take between 20-25 minutes to complete the survey and the questions you get will be tailored to you based on your answers to previous questions.
We invite all gamers to complete this survey. It doesn’t matter how you play (console, desktop, laptop, smart phone or tablet) or whether you play strategy games, adventure games or if you’re a puzzle game fan. We want to hear from you. You will also have a chance to be entered into a prize draw for a £50 Amazon voucher.
If you have any questions about this survey or accessible gaming in general contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
