Join us for a community discussion hosted by XR Access and the XR Association in which you, our esteemed community, can take on some of the biggest challenges in XR accessibility.  This time: Alternative Inputs. How can people who have challenges accessing traditional controllers and interaction paradigms interact with VR? How can we ensure all kinds of input devices are compatible with XR devices? What are the best practices for customizing buttons and motion controls?

With featured speakers Jamie + Lion, Mar Gonzalez-Franco, and Rick Tett, join us in paving the path forward for alternative inputs!

If you require accessibility accommodations such as American Sign Language interpretation, please email no fewer than 72 hours before the event.
