As many of you already know, Madden 18 is the first game EA chose to make accessible to blind people. This is totally fantastic, and a huge step in the right direction.
But, there is a very important accessibility feature missing, which might be the one of the reasons for many blind people still haven't tried the game, and all the great accessibility rumble features which makes the game playable. The important feature is screenreader support.
Karen have put extremely much work into writing a very well written guide on how to navigate the menus etc. But, you either need to follow this guide every time you are playing the game, or remember all the steps.
As you might have seen by Karens posts on the forum, EA Games have made an accessibility bug report forum, which is being read by the other EA Games developers. I have made a report explaining about the importance of screenreader support, which I really hope is going to happen, if there is enough interest.
So, I'm asking you to do the following:
Go to my bug report, and click the "me too" link, if you agree and you are experiencing the same difficulty by navigating huge and complex menus without any screenreader support. Feel free to create an EA account and leave a reply if you have anything to add.
This is very important that as many of you react on this as possible, because EA Games is already looking into making other games accessible as well. They have already made UF3 somewhat playable.

If you like the post, then please give it a thumps up.
Feel free to contact me privately if you have something in mind. If you do so, then please send me a mail instead of using the private message on the forum, since I don't check those very often.
Happy gaming... :D
