Today, Owlchemy Labs released an update to their popular VR game Cosmonius High that introduces several exciting new features designed to make the alien adventure experience accessible to players with visual impairments. The Vision Accessibility Update includes object highlighting, voice descriptions of what objects a player is holding, grab-and-release confirmation when items have been picked up and released, environmental descriptions and more. Jazmin Cano (accessibility product manager at Owlchemy Labs) and Steve Saylor (independent accessibility advocate & consultant) are particularly enthusiastic about this development: “We believe that VR gaming should be accessible to everyone”; “The combination of visual descriptions… make it possible for me to experience VR in a way I never thought possible”. This update has opened up a world of immersive virtual reality experiences will no longer exclude low-vision gamers – something we are all very pleased about!
