HI Kevin,
Audio and DirectX? Basic stuff? Hahaha! From the little I know, DirectX used
with C ++ isn't exactly a cakewalk.
Best Regards,
Hayden

HI there,

Has someone a really good Tutorial on C++ that is like specially designed 
for Blind people, or more with Sound than with pictures and all that 
other designing stuff?
Like how to use the Audio in DirectX, Variables, and that basic stuff?
I would appriciate having one and also would be very thankful for the 
person who gives me access to such materials.

Kevin
