Not only that, but one fact some people often overlook is some game's
can't be completely converted to an accessible version for one reason or

graphics that can't be easily translated into audio. It can be something
as simple as a different color of enemy to something much more

another the same information a sighted person gets by looking at the
screen has to be accurately conveyed via audio. That's often not
possible or difficult depending on the game in question.
