On Monday, August 8th, the Digital Public Goods (DPG) Alliance added the XRAccessibility GitHub Project to its DPG Registry. The DPG designation indicates that a resource supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals through reducing inequalities and improving economic growth.
The XRAccessibility Project is an initiative driven by the XR Association and XR Access to provide a centralized place online to find solutions to help support accessible XR experiences. The project was an outgrowth of the XRA’s third installment — Accessibility & Inclusive Design in Immersive Experience – of its ongoing Developers Guide: An Industry-Wide Collaboration for Better XR series.released in October 2020. It was also inspired by developers who reported challenges in finding accessible code snippets.
