Madden 18 Accessibility Changes
Inside EA there are individuals working to make Madden 18 easier to play with new accessibility features. We won't see these in the game on day one, but they are coming in the first Madden 18 update that will be along soon after launch.
We now have rumble and audio for the kick meter and a rumble to let players know which type of play suggested plays are. Karen Stevens of EA shares that, "This means the blind should be able to kick the ball with no issue and know how well they kicked the ball. It also allows the blind to use suggested plays and know if a run or kick play was selected, when the ball is snapped."
Stevens blindfolded resters to see if they could play like this and they were able to win a game of Madden 18 blindfolded. Stevens added, "I was also able to get touchdowns using only rumble - my TV was totally off."

Looks like I’m first. Another yet of promises and another year of exploits.
We already see the exploit and unrealistic passing they have already which to a degree lets you target the WR. I can see this making for some messy games because there is no INTELLIGENCE behind the feature. Just because you target someone doesn’t mean they will be READY for the pass. This game does NOT respect route running and timing.
Day ONE… no matter the video or what gamers who tell us differently with their canned disclaimers… I will show the SAME ISSUES continue to exist in this game and features is nothing more than a marketing tool rather than a true feature.
I’m posting videos from M17 now and will look for them to continue to exist in M18 and I will post them IMMEDIATELY this time around.
The videos will consist of Gameplay (the most important: Fake AI, Fake Physics, Predetermined tackles, etc… ), Playbook (creation, editing, settings, flow), Practice Mode, Commentary… yes commentary is not just about updating a players last week stats and status for this week to play, Game UI while playing (lots and lots and lots of bugs).
Having improved graphics and poor game play doesn’t make for much of an improvement.
