Next-Level XR: People with Disabilities Unlocking New Worlds

Mar 11, 2024

10:00am – 11:00am CT

We have the opportunity to build incredible, inclusive immersive worlds - why aren’t we? In many cases, it’s because we don’t hear from people with disabilities in the process. People with disabilities are uniquely qualified to solve problems quickly and thoughtfully because it’s how they live their lives. This panel unites innovative XR, accessibility, and lived experience to show how we can build virtual worlds where everyone can thrive. It’s past time to tap into the knowledge of disabled people to make the metaverse accessible, equitable, and more impressive than you ever thought possible.
