Yup.

Napsa list would be a good starting point, and at least one other person on that list, who isn't on this list has spoken of trying to setting up some gaming events using internet connections.


On my side I also still reckon would like to set up some or other LAN gaming session where we could kick sighties butts at things like topspeed, sound RTS, audioQuake, etc.

In terms of an actual presentation, I think that games similar to those played by some sighted people would make the best impression, so things like mysteries of the ancients, topspeed/mach1 racing, some simpler side scroller type games like Q9, as well as some interactive fiction/puzzle games including jim kitchen's would make a good impression, as well as maybe something like entombed.

Maybe also some things like pacman talks, audioDisk, etc. etc. - but there are literally too many out there, so it would really come down to choosing the best ones for the actual time length of the show etc., and have also recently been looking into the creation of infocom IFDB games, and the one thought that also came up with was maybe creating some that would specifically be best if you had eSpeak Afrikaans voice set as your computer's default SAPI/TTS voice - afrikaans interactive fiction games.

Stay well

Maybe you could send this to the nabsa mailing list. As far as I know
we are not more than 4 or 5 South Africans on this list.

Hi all
For those of you who reside in south Africa, on rsg, south africa's global
Afrikaans radio station, on Sunday afternoons, Fanie du Toit presents a
program dealing with various types of disabilities and how disabled people
live, how their social lives are, and many other subjects regarding
disabilities. Translated directly from Afrikaans, the program is entitled: living world of the disabled. I have been thinking: What if I contact Fanie
and ask if its possible for me or another blind person living in south
Africa that would be interested to go to the studio of rsg and do a
presentation about games for the blind.
I think it will be an excellent way to educate the whole of south Africa who
is listening to rsg, about games for the blind.
What do you all think about this idea?
If you think it's a good idea, what genre of  game do you think should be
emphasized if  such  a presentation is to be  delivered?
Not only does people in south Africa listen to rsg, but also people around
the world on their website. Just think how amazing it will be if a lot of
people can be informed about the blind gaming community.
Not all sighted people are  even aware that blind people can also play
games. I would like to enjoy the privilege of doing such a presentation, but if another blind person in south Africa wish to do the show, they are
more than welcome.
I just thought of discussing with the list what you all think of a
presentation about blind gaming on rsg.
If you guys think it's a good idea, do those of you residing  in south
Africa know how to contact fanie du toit about this initiative?
I would like to hear what you think about this.
Happy gaming.
