Valve add accessibility to Portal 2

By One Switch
Portal2-Valve-Remappable.jpg

Valve, inspired by Chuck Bittner's tireless Custom Button reMapping Petition, have pledged to add this feature to Portal 2 via a free download patch.

This follows colour-blind options they have added to their games in the recent past, such as Left4Dead,  and full subtitles / closed-captions in Half-Life 2 (PG warning for those links). Bravo!

See the SpecialEffect Wish List for Accessible Game Design for more ideas that can open up the world of gaming.
