> Three years ago, a team of Microsoft employees joined together on a quest to make gaming more fun and accessible to people who are blind or have low vision. After years of hacking on machine learning algorithms in their spare time, talking with customers in the blind and low vision community, and partnering with gaming experts, the team releases their first title: Ear Hockey, a Microsoft Garage project <https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/p/ear-hockey-a-microsoft-garage-project/9pn1f06sq5m2>. With in-game audio cues that enable gamers to play with or without for visuals, Ear Hockey was crafted using inclusive design to promote accessibility in game development.
