Microsoft Adaptive Accessories could enhance gaming PC accessibility

            Microsoft has unveiled a brand new adaptive accessories range, and it could help further <a href="https://www.pcgamesn.com/best-gaming-pc-build">gaming PC</a> accessibility. The new ecosystem of peripherals aims to be highly adaptable and easy to use, enabling users to create a specific setup based on individual needs.

The Microsoft Adaptive Accessories lineup isn’t designed with just gaming PC use in mind, as it’ll boost accessibility on a variety of Windows devices. The range includes a multifunction wireless button that’s customisable using 3D printed parts, enabling you to use it as an alternative keyboard for both work and play. Accompanying the button is an adaptive mouse, which pairs with various ‘tails’ that transform its form factor.

According to Microsoft’s Accessibility Blog, “each piece is designed in partnership with the disability community,” and the range aims caters to those who struggle with traditional desk setups. While other ventures like the Xbox Adaptive Controller help provide alternative gamepad inputs, the new Adaptive Accessories may help more people play the best PC games without a gaming mouse and keyboard.
