I aim to make both my theatre and gaming work as accessible as possible, and am always looking for more ways to do so. (By ‘accessibility’ I mean everything from providing BSL interpreters to asking for all participants’ pronouns to live streaming shows to maintaining ticket prices at £10 or below.)
Whilst I don’t claim to be an expert on access, I am actively trying to build up a bank of knowledge and resources, and am always happy to share these with others concerned about accessibility. As part of my attempt to amass more knowledge about access, I will be attending the Gaming Accessibility Conference in Paris in October.
Resources I currently have/am developing and am happy to share include:
- Screen-reader compatible character sheets for 5e D&D
- Word copies of PDF gaming docs (as the latter aren’t screen-reader compatible)
- A document on how to deal with trigger subjects in improvised performance (covering such things as language to avoid/use, the limits of appropriate detail, and suitable presentations of certain subjects)
- Sample relaxed performance information packs
- Information on standard practices to make show/game documentation as accessible as possible
I’m always excited to hear from people making accessible work, and to talk to people about ways to make work more accessible – feel free to contact me here.
