Hey guys! Our friends from Racing Auditory Display have a message for every handicapped player out there :-)
Most of us strive to make the world a better place for everybody. It’s evident by the campaigns throughout the world to make every public good or entertainment option accessible to all is a part of this scheme. But still, there are many public goods and facilities that are not equally enjoyable by all.
One such not-fully-accessible-to-all facility is video gaming, especially racing games. Though racing games have been played by blind people using driver assistance systems, they have never been played by them with the same efficiency and sense of control that sighted players have.
But this condition is all set to change, thanks to the effort of Brian A. Smith, a Ph.D. candidate in computer science in the department of engineering at Columbia. Brian has developed a new audio-based user interface for visually challenged gamers, which will enable them to enjoy racing games with the same speed, control and excitement that sighted players experience.
The new audio-based interface, called the racing auditory display (RAD), can be integrated into racing video games rather easily and is set to make these games equally accessible to people who are blind. Unlike common driver assistance systems, RAD uses sonification techniques rather than speech. To be precise, RAD uses two sonification techniques, which Smith describes as ‘the “sound slider” for understanding a car’s speed and trajectory on a racetrack and the “turn indicator system” for alerting players of the direction, sharpness, length and timing of upcoming turns.’

The new European Union’s law guarantees access to the same content for all EU member states. On April 1st 2018 the new law is in effect!
From now on all content on digital platforms like Netflix, Amazon, Steam and any other digital service has to be accessible to all countries of the European Union. That’s it
This is amazing news, something we’ve all wanted has finally happened after around 10 years of waiting, on the other hand that could mean increased prices (hopefully not) and things like no content of some sort at all in European Union.
Unavailable subtitles for movies and shows on Netflix are the things of past! Before the Digital Single Market law you couldn’t watch let’s say a movie with Polish subtitles while visiting Spain for example (been there, done that) which sucked really hard especially if the things you were watching weren’t in English (or other languages that you know).
Now let’s just wait and see what happens next, are they going to adhere to the new law? Is content going to change severely?

I’ve always liked Paragon, since the early beta that I’ve tried, it’s basically a MOBA game in 3rd person created by Epic Games, the creators of the good old Unreal and Unreal Tournament series. Turns out Epic is now shutting down Paragon (we’ve known this for a while now…) and recently they’ve decided to update the Unreal Engine with content from Paragon absolutely for FREE!
Epic Games has released twelve million dollars of content from Paragon, Epic’s high-end action MOBA, for free to all Unreal Engine 4 developers. The assets encompass 20 AAA-quality characters and over 1,500 environment components from Paragon.
You can grab the Paragon content by going here and read what’s new in the latest Unreal Engine 4 update here. More Unreal Engine news coming today on GDC 2018. More info on the official website – watch the official YouTube channel.
