In the gaming world, sound is more than soundtracks. It’s an essential multidimensional tool that allows gamers to know what is happening around their character. Subsequently, Deaf gamers are excluded from this gameplay experience.
Dell Technologies, in partnership with Alienware, launched The Gaming Cap, the first-of-its-kind technology that allows deaf people to feel the gaming sounds they can't hear. By using this wearable tech, the deaf community's disability doesn't affect their ability to game anymore. This branded innovation connects the over 300MM community not only with Dell hardware but the entire gaming world. The device is compatible with all gaming platforms and major gaming franchises.
The Gaming Cap was created FOR deaf people and WITH deaf people. During the process, The Gaming Cap had consultancies from accessibility experts and inclusion specialists, like ABLE GAMERS (accessibility in gaming) and AME (Inclusion of people with disabilities).
