Hi John,
I explored the site and although Jaws works well and I can move around quickly with the h Header and n next significant section hot keys there is not much on the site for totally blind people.
I did a search using blind as the search string and 50 hits came up.
About 48 of them were about color blindness as a factor in playing a specific game. The one that did interest me was about one game level being dark and the objects indicated by sounds.
But when I clicked on the link to read it, the article was not available.
Some of the games were reviewed and there were two ratings after them but only the numbers showed up and not what they represented. So in short the site is great for disabilities such as motor impairment, colorblindness, or the hard of hearing, but a waste of time for the totally blind or visually impaired person.

Folks,

Please help me determine if the Web site www.ablegamers.com is indeed
now blind accessible.

I've been bugging Mark Barlet, the Webmaster, for a year about this. We
met here in Boston last week and he said he'd added skipnav and related
features.

But my skills at JAWS are pathetic. And his Web site is
information-dense. I got in and realized that I can't do a fair
evaluation on my own.

Mark is a sighted disabled Vet, who's had a demonstrable effect getting
the mainstream game biggies to make their stuff more accessible to the
motion impaired.

If we can help him make his Web site more blind and VI accessible, then
perhaps we can get some of his effectiveness to benefit the blind and VI
gaming community.

Please go to www.ablegamers.com and post here how it works for you.

Dark, how well does Mark's Web site work for your reader?

Thanks,

John Bannick
