I play Mortal Kombat sometimes. It's all mono though, so I don't know where I am in relation to my opponent. If it had stereo sound and I could figure out a way to know which player I was, then I would probably get in trouble with my wife for playing it too frequently.

Subject: Re: [Audyssey] my frustration with the blind gaming comunity.


I don't mean any kind of complicated RPG. I mean a 2d fighting game, a Street Fighter type game. No complicated walking or picking up weapons, just a typical fighting game with a decent selection of characters, good amount of moves per character and a solid combo system. No audio cues during fights, so basically a mainstream game, with talking menus. Would people play that? Again, if so, why, and if not, why not?

hmmm
If someone made a game with the narated options, maybe a few cues and such, I don't know made it like the audio games for the blind are today, but was able to have things so we could play it I'd probably get it.
I am not sure what else would need to be done to make it accessible.
Right now with the fact we are behind it would have to be simplified loads so the blind in general could play it though I have not seen the new mota g3d port in 3d mode. I guess as long as we had target things, etc or whatever if we needed to walk round we would be ok.
I am actually not sure how to answer the question.
If the char had an inventory that and the menus would have to be accessible. Item pickups and their uses I guess, cues for bits and pieces not sure what would have to be done if not allready.
THere would have to be a pause feature, that would have to be a must.
There would have to be a way to turn down the music as we would have to listen. And sounds well no mono sounds to be positioned, since its all 3d directions these days. HOwever right now we are at the crossroads from the simple games that only the poor blind can play with crappy bad software like vb6 and autoit to the new systems which are not fully active yet.
From a user point I'd be happy to buy it if it didn't cost to much.
If it was for the pc it would have to have keyboard control though.
I know everyone with a joystick will jump down my throat but the reality is I don't have the space for a stick. The blind have traditionally used the keyboard and only now are moving away from that.

I want to put out a question to everyone here... and see how much of a discussion I can spark. If someone were to make a fully-fledged fighting game, exactly like Street fighter, no audio changes except for narated options, would people play it?
