Accessible Game

Web

Leaning on our accessibility expertise, PBS affiliate THIRTEEN/WNET New York tapped Relish to design and build a “born accessible” web game for the Emmy Award-winning PBS KIDS series Cyberchase. The series inspires children 6-8 to approach math with enthusiasm, confidence and a “can-do” attitude. It shows kids that math is everywhere, and everyone can be good at it!

Born accessible games

“Born accessible” refers to a growing movement that encourages digital content creators to consider the needs and experiences of users with disabilities from the start of a project so accessibility features are “baked into” the project as it is being developed. The accessibility features are included from the initial testing phase and refined as the project develops so that the needs of users with disabilities are met.

Math and the environment

With the goal of seamlessly embedding accessibility features into the digital experience, the game incorporates accessibility features for children with a variety of physical and cognitive abilities. Our game extends the show’s themes of math and the environment and incorporates accessible data visualization, requiring the analysis or decoding of informational graphics such as graphs, charts, tables, etc. as an integral game component. The game is available now at pbskids.org and on the PBS KIDS Games mobile app.
