Interview with Todd Crapper about Vision Layers

Aser and Megan were excited to have the chance to talk to Todd Crapper about his kickstarter for Vision Layers, and what it means for the future of RPG PDF accessibility. Vision Layers adds layers to PDFs to allow for the user to change the font, adjust colors, and make the document more screen reader friendly, while still only releasing one file.  Todd has teamed up with a huge variety of publishers for an initial release; with Timewatch from Pelgrane, CAPERS from Nerd Burger Games, Fate Condensed from Evil Hat, and Ninja Crusade from Third Eye Games already unlocked. 

Please give this kickstarter a look and your support to show publishers that there is an interest in accessibility! We have really high hopes of seeing this method used in all RPG books in the future. 

Vision Layers is running until December 12!
