Hi Darren and all.

Strictly speaking, none of the game consoles are accessable nor are they
ever likely to be so.  If you have a game on umd for your psp the easiest
way to get into it is to insert the umd before you turn on the system.  If
you do that then the game should start automatically.  If it doesn't then
this can probably be configured in the settings menu.

I personally find the psp menus quite easy for the most part in terms of the
system itself because they do not wrap around, e.g. when you get to the left
menu you cannot wrap around to the right side of the screen.  This makes it
possible to either memorize or write down the menu structure so you can keep
track of it.  What is admittedly a challenge for us is learning the menus
once you actually get into a game because a lot of these will wrap around,
but unfortunately we're not going to get away from that with most mainstream
games except for those relatively few where the menus talk completely.  Here
the best solution I've found is to write the menus down so that you at least
will only need sighted assistance one or two times.  Again you are probably
going to have to do that whichever system you decide to get.

As for getting into content on your memory stick if you have one, I am not
sure how to get into games that you have on there as I've not really tried
to do this yet, I mainly use my memory stick for movies or music.

I am sure there are folks on here who know more than I do about getting into
various kinds of content and doing more with their psp's who can help you
out as well simply because I have not invested more time into it, I have
figured out how to do what I want to do for the most part for now.  For
instance, the PSP has wifi capability that I have not even tapped into as
yet because I have not felt the need to do so and because that part will
take quite a bit of sighted assistance at least for the initial setup.

Well I am off to work, have a good day.

Tom

ofaccessibility?


Hi all,

I'm really wondering about this as I really want to get into the newer
games. I bought a psp and was really disappointed because getting into the
games turned out to be a game in itself lol. In terms of navigating through
the menus and I can see a little!

So am wondering, what is the best games console to go for in terms of
overall ease of use?
