That's whya document like Michael Feir's excellently written Personal
Power book is a very good help to the blind. If every rehab center or
state agency could hand that out to a totally new blind computer user it
would go a long ways to solving a lot of problems in terms of exposing
them to all the things available to them. Especially, to accessible
games of which I am always eager to find new markets and customers.
Instead it seams each new generation of blind computer users have to
find these things out the hard way by searching for it.

Just a quick note here...
The Veterens administration gives computers to those blind veterens
who can handle it. They only give jaws to the vets, and there is
absolutely no mention of other screen readers. in fact, the VA
trainers in the rehab hospitals for the blind have never once told me
anything about all the great things the visually impaired has
accomplished thru programs, games, email lists and the like.
It would have been nice for those computer teachers to give out lots
of links to the communities that are on the internet, it would have
made my first few years a lot less stressful and difficult.
AS a side note, the only game provided by the VA for the blind was a
chess set, and bingo.
