Hi Nicol.

An emulator is a program designed to pretend to be another piece of hardware running on your pc.


If you wanted for instance, you could run a comador 64 computer emulator and use it's word processer function.

However, obviously the thing people most want to do with emulators is emulate games consoles or computer systems of the past and run games.

Thus, when running correctly, an emulator gets you precisely the same as you'd get if you physically had a nes, snes, ps1 or whatever.

They thus don't specifically help with access, sinse unfortunately it's not possible to read the graphically emulated text with your pc screen reader (if it was that would be awsome, but sadly no).

So, emulators are basically just another way of playing mainstream games, and one which, as Tom says is of dubious legality.

I personally haven't run that many emulators, simply because I prefer to play games on original consoles and sinse I have a perfectly working Snes gamecube and Mega drive there really is no need for me to.

beware the grue!

Dark.

Hi Mathias
I am not so clued up  with mainstream games and emulators so here is a
question from a newbee.
Are emulators programs that can make mainstream pc games more accessible?
I mean, if I legally  buy a  mainstream pc game such as Mario, is the
emulators you uploaded, there to make them more accessible?
Many thanks for any info.
