Well yes games are secondary nobody is arguing that, that's not even an
issue. I mean you aren't going to make a living out of playing games.
Although it would be nice though!!!! But it's this rather stupid mentality
of oh games aren't meant for computers or blind people shouldn't be playing
games that's what I think is wrong. I mean we all need some form of
enjoyment or stress relief at the end of the day for what ever reason. I
mean, what's better, playing games, drinking or smoking yourself to death?
Because people will find an outlet somewhere and I think gaming is much more
healthy in the long run.

yeah games are secondary, fair enough I suppose.
don't lose heart though, we are not out the woods yet.
I know for example that mushclient can work direct with jaws and windoweyes
and a map exists for lonewolf in hal 5 and later. I think though that
expecting the manufacturers to make game scripts just won't happen, however
thats no big concern, all readers, hal, jaws and windoweyes have some form
of scripting, jaws is scripted and has been for a long time. windoweyes and
hal although they had setting and map files respectively have got scripts
and people are actively using and developing, true it may cost a bit to get
the script adition of the software but at the end of the day you have the
tools. nvda was made in python and its an opensource system, you can write
modules for it these are scripts by default. At 07:22 a.m. 4/12/2009, you
