WEBCAST Aug 10: @A11yVR – Designing for Bodies: Accessibility in VR – Richard Hoagland

ISOC LIVEOn Wednesday August 10 2022 at 19:30 EDT / 23:30 UTC / 08:30 JST (Aug 11) the Accessibility VR Meetup hosts ‘Designing for Bodies: Accessibility in VR‘. Developers and designers face challenges in building accessible XR experiences when the nature of XR is an embodied experience, and many standard methods of interaction and interface require complex bodily movements. Richard Hoagland of VRTogether will work through the case study of an activity called Dot2Dot that fosters social interaction through two individuals solving a casual puzzle together – while ensuring the experience is fun and engaging for both users manipulating virtual hand switch controllers and those using gaze-based input. And importantly for the VRTogether team, supporting both interaction modalities at the same time.

The session will be webcast live via a partnership with the Internet Society New York Chapter Accessibility SIG (A11ySIG).
