Last month in Toronto, The AbleGamers Foundation opened a new Accessibility Arcade, a place where disabled gamers can try out the latest in accessible gaming technology to determine what works best for them before buying. The new arcade, hosted by the University of Toronto’s Semaphore Research Cluster, joins a similar arcade in Washington, D.C. and is open to the public via appointment. For more information, contact Semaphore Research Coordinator Amy Ratelle at amy.ratelle@utoronto.ca. [via The Globe and Mail
