Re: Regarding Accessibility in New Products

Personally I'm not entirely convinced valve will ever do anything about access. they are too huge a company for the people that actually matter to even here the access requests, let alone have the power to do anything about it.

Certainly feel free to try again with another petition and so on since it's always worth a try and Valve might prove the one exception, but until the law is changed to give disabled access a bit more power in terms of priority once companies decide something isn't going to be good enough for the almighty prophet margin that is usually that.

Indeed when I have spoken to companies like Capcom and Nintendo it's not even possible to speak! to the people making the design dicisons since they're all in a bunker under a mountain in Japan somewhere and you just get fobbed off with the publicity advisers, who actually have no power to put in any design change requests anyway.

So while I would definitely support giving it a try, I'm not going to hold my breath, particularly given the amount of effort that has already! been made, and Valve's response, ---- or lack of.

What would help considerably more is if someone designed an accessible interface or skin to interact with the steam client, to aide in setting up the account and installation, so people could run accessible games afterwards.

I don't mean an alternative client since I suspect Valve doesn't allow interaction, but something you can run along side the steam client which for example uses Sapi to handle input and output of text during account setup and game installation, without having to mess with ocr, clicking with no knolidge or the like.
