Have you noticed that a lot of games either don't have screen reader support or if they do it ... leaves something to be desired?

This is because it's incredibly hard to create screen reader experiences from a development process.

Let's break it down! #gamdev #a11y

Let's start by talking about screen readers! A screen reader is a form of assistive technology that renders text and image content as speech.

Screen readers use APIs/frameworks offered by the platform (such as UIA on Windows) to know what content is there and read it out loud!
Screen readers exist on Playstation, Xbox, PC/Windows and mobile devices!

Step two, move the guide edges so that they wrap around the model snugly.

Finally what I actually wanted to post ๐Ÿ˜…

Here is a first dynamic update version of the rendering

Got a couple of things to optimize and reduce/remove some expensive operations that cause drops in the video

Doing shadow culling could potentially improve performance a lot

but it's perhaps not necessary for our usecase so that's just a sidenote
Started adding support for additional properties per instance (test with subtle brightness variation)
