Non-profit organization Entertainment Consumer Association (ECA) is partnering with AbleGamers to open a new Accessibility Chapter, the company announced via press release.
The AbleGamers Foundation is a public charity that helps gamers with disabilities and runs AbleGamers.com, a website dedicated to accessibility of mainstream games. According to president and founder Mark Barlet, the two organizations have worked together for the last few years to remove stigmas and include disabled gamers in all games.
"We feel like the ECA really understands our desire to improve video games by including those with disabilities without harming the creative process," Barlet said. "Together, [we] will be able to reach out and educate developers and gamers alike on the importance of including those with disabilities in the wonderful world of videogames."
The chapter will operate within the ECA.
