Regarding the Wii, they have a new attachment called motion plus coming out that will make the Wii controller a one to one input device. What that means is, no matter which way you move or twist your hand, it can pick it up. The technology is amazing, as they have managed to pack dozens of tyny gyroscopes on a thin wafer to track all rotation. Couple this with the Wii's accelerometers and you have yourself a true one to one virtual device, something that would have cost thousands of dollars just a decade ago can now be had for less than fifty bucks. I know a lot of you aren't familiar with the wii input or why it is so special, but once it gets tied to a good accessible game, I think the results will be amazing for the blind community. I have managed to get wii input into the PC on my end for the fighting game. Next step is to program it to recognize combos. Also, I have found a cheap blue tooth device at best buy that works well for coupling the wii to your pc, this was my biggest worry going into this, was finding a cheap enough blue tooth hardware device, but this one is only 15 bucks.
 anyhow, I'll update as more details come up.
 Later,
Che

As you play with their help, you'll notice that there are trends to how you bowl. For me, I don't move my person at all for the first turn of the frame. Then, if I don't get a strike, I almost always have to move six clicks to the right. Sometimes I'm wrong and the pin's in the middle though, so I miss it. The best to play when people are gone is the power throw training game, where you have one turn per frame and the pins just keep increasing in number. You won't know your exact score, but you'll know by the music if you beat the high score and, if you earn a metal, about what your score is--in the 600s for gold, 500s for silver, and 400s for bronze.

I was just about to ask this same question. My folks have a Wii, and I'd like to know how I'd go about playing it when they were gone. We have Wii Sports, Carnival Games, and Mario Kart or something like that.
