I can't speak to all three organizations, but I would guess the reason a
stand isn't taken is because there are many bigger issues out there. Nearly
three fourths  of blind people in the US are unemployed. Only twelve percent
are learning to read Braille. Funding for rehabilitation centers is being
cut all over. In the face of that, game accessibility just doesn't seem that
critical.

Josh,

That is spamming and illegal. The way to get attention is probably by a mass
media campaign.

|One thing that puzzles me is that large blindness organizations like the
AFB, ACB and the NFB have not made much of a noise about game accessibility.
They may have better clout then a bunch of users. Mind you, I am in India so
I could be wrong about these organizations.
