“Towards a Low Cost Adaptation of Educational Games for People with Disabilities” is yet another scholarly article that I intend to use for my gaming research assignment. My overall topic is on gaming and special education or disabilities, so I believe that this article would be extremely fitting to incorporate amongst the many  others that I have found.

As stated directly by the authors of this scholarly article, “In this paper we analyze how to increase the level of accessibility in videogames by adding support for it in game authoring software. This approach can reduce the effort required to make a game accessible for people with disabilities, resulting in significant savings.” What I found to be the most useful for this article was not only just their study but what type of people they chose to use as their test subjects. They specifically tested individuals with mostly visual disabilities, such as blindness, low vision, and limited mobility. Some other disabilities were taken into account, but this was very specific.
