Madden NFL 17 Accessibility Improves with Larger Icons, Colorblind Support & More


EA Sports has improved accessibility in Madden NFL 17 with larger icons, colorblind support, 5 levels of brightness/contrast and more. If you want to request other accessibility options, make sure to tweet the team here.

Quote:
Any in-world icon that is prompting user interaction (pass, catch, tackle battle, etc.) will be about twice as big. Augmented UI banners will gracefully enlarge, but will still be prevented from filling too much of the screen. The kick meter is larger and it pins itself to the screen, instead of being placed in the world. These changes have been tested by internal Madden NFL developers that also have vision issues, such as macular degeneration.

We estimate that over half a million current Madden NFL users are colorblind*. Bright primary colors are used all over Madden NFL, so there were issues with many menus and on-field art. Filters seemed to be a great way to go, as they cover the entire game, including all menus. Red, green, and blue weak colorblindness are all supported and tested, with great results.

Re: Madden 17 Accessibility Improvements

This is great. Other games have done this and it's good to see them stepping up to implement this stuff. Only change I would change is maybe allowing options for specific items. I don't have vision issues but I like the way the big kick meter looks and wouldn't mind using that by default.

I'm going to send them a lot of positive feedback over this. We need to really praise them for considering visually impaired people. I hope this helps you enjoy the game more.

Re: Madden 17 Accessibility Improvements

great additions. I like the larger icons because I'm getting older and like to play sitting on the couch further back. I am also color blind and am looking forward to using the color blind feature.

I also love the addition of brightness and contrast settings.

So glad EA is adding more options. Hopefully they add more for sliders too.
