Hi Ken,

Yeah, that was basically my point. As someone who plays NetHack and
other text games like it once and a while sounds would be nice, but
for me aren't necessary to enjoy the game. Hopefully the story and
game play is good enough to keep you occupied/entertained.

As far as using the Jaws cursor I'm not sure how to answer that one.
Window-Eyes does a good job of reading the Windows command prompt so
whenever the text changes on screen it reads it automatically. I don't
have a braille display to test it and I suppose you will probably have
to use the Jaws cursor if you are using a braille display. If you have
a better idea how to make it work better with braille displays or
something like the PM let me know, but whatever I do you'd have to use
somekind of screen review. A plane text application is about as simple
and accessible as you can get.

As for Graphic Audio check it out. They have done some of the major DC
Comics comicbook series such as Crisis on Infinite Earths, Infinite
Crisis,  52, Count Down, Final Crisis, Superman Never Ending Battle,
and several more. They are only like $13 each so they are not that
expensive either. In a way they are better than reading thecomic books
just because of all the sound effects, music, and top of the line
voice acting.

It is kind of funny but growing up in the 70's and 80's I always
thought of Linda Carter as the voice of Wonder Woman because she
played Wonder Woman in the television series. However, after listening
to the graphic audio audio recordings I think the Graphic Audio
actress does a better job. Her voice is perfectly suited for playing
an Amazon warrior princess.
