It certainly seems much more noticeable in the blind community than I've ever heard from sighted folks. That's all I'm saying.

For the record, *EVERYONE* complains about difficulty. I don't think
it's fair to pin this specifically on blind people, fun as it may be
to do so.

Well that could be a tall order given a lot of people's attitudes about the
difficulty of games. A game that's challenging enough to keep a sighted
person's interest is apparently too hard for a lot of blind folks.

Hi.  Well, I intend to go steps further and write a commercially viable
game that can be played by both the sighted and the blind. I've invested lots in learning software development, and it seems to me a huge waste of
all that money if I don't put what i learn to practical use, hence my
intention to write a video game which is also accessible.  Cheers!

So far as I know most audio game devs don't even bother with graphics
since they're totally blind or visually impaired enough that graphics
wouldn't do them any good.

Subject: [Audyssey] Questions for all you game developers on the list


Hi All. I am in the midst of writing an accessible video game and have
a few questions
to ask.  First up, I'd like to know which open source engine is most
frequently being
used by all you experienced developers, or hav you had to build a
graphics and audio
engine for your game from scratch?  Second, I am still juggling in my
mind as to
whether I'll code my game in cSharp or c++.  In comparison, are there
any significant
drawbacks or significant advantages in terms of performance and
reliability if i
were to choose one above the other?  I am quite profficient in both,
although I've
taken a microsoft certified course in cSharp, whereas for c++, it has
been mostly
self taught.  Also, if anyone of you could point me to a good tutorial
on keyboard
input, especially for triggering audio events, I'd really appreciate it.

my last
question is, if i had to resort to Microsoft's DirectX SDK for
developing my game,
is there a way to make the keyboard controls accessible?  Any input is
extremely
welcomed.  Cheers! and thanks
