Just a little note. Well, it is hard to say how many blind users use
Linux, because not a lot of them are on this list. However, there
seams to be quite a lot over on the Orca mailing list, Speakup mailing
list, Gnome Accessibility List, etc. As a result I have estimated
about 100 blind Linux users online world wide just by reading posts
etc. There may be more possibly less, but it is still a fairly decent
market if a game developer actively courts that market. The trouble is
that game developers often hang out here rather than the Linux
specific lists and there hasn't been any concerted effort to go to the
source and ask about how many VI Linux users there are interested in
playing games. So the trouble with The Braille Soft polll is I know it
has been posted here, but has it been posted to the Linux mailing
If not then I doubt Louis will hear back from a number of Linux users
since they don't tend to congrigate on this list. Besides myself I
know Zack, Michael, and a couple of others regularly use Linux but not
many on this list do. However, four or five of us aren't
representative of the entire blind Linux community.
