Microsoft unveils its clever new Xbox Adaptive Controller for gamers with disabilities

Share

Namely, the company announced the launch of an adaptive controller for Xbox specially created to improve accessibility. Additionally, the Xbox Adaptive Controller supports external inputs from a range of third-party manufacturers, including PDP, Logitech, and Quadstick (you can see a full list here). Microsoft worked with many organizations around the world in order to make this controller a reality for many disabled people across the globe.

The controller has been worked on with assistance from AbleGamers, Warfighter Engaged, SpecialEffect, Craig Hospital and the Cerebral Palsy Foundation. That's where the Xbox Adaptive Controller comes in. With the help of these ports, the user will be able to attach various devices such as large buttons, air-powered input and more. Previously it launched a co-pilot control scheme that lets you access certain elements of the game while someone else manages the rest. "On our journey of inclusive design, we have taken a wider view of our fans and a more inclusive approach to designing for them". "We realize that this is only one step along our journey of inclusive design and that we have more work ahead", Spencer said.
