Nonprofit Aims to Provide Gaming Access for People Who Have Disabilities


On this West Virginia Morning, video games can help who have disabilities feel more included and accepted among their peers in social circles. But not everyone with a disability can play video games with a traditional controller. As Liz McCormick reports, one nonprofit organization in Kearneysville, West Virginia, has been trying to change that.

Also on today’s show, in an effort to expand coverage of arts and culture throughout the region, our Inside Appalachia team has expanded to include a group of folklife corps reporters. The most recent episode of Inside Appalachia features the first story from that project.

Folklife corps reporter Mason Adams brings us a story of a man with an unusually strong appreciation for bugs. He’s an Army vet who says fly-fishing saved his life.
