well We have one on radionz.co.nz called one in 5 its supposed to be good and would be but its on at the wrong time.
At any rate I could care less about what the media say.
As far as media care we are the poor blind.
Yeah they do help but most of the time they hinder and make background noise so I learned not to listen. The net has better info than any news station though they are trying to change it.

There is a radio show over here called In Touch that's on every Tuesday. Mind you, they sometimes go on about and try and promote the RNIB stuff as well at times. The link for the listen again thing if you want to hear the latest show is below. Its normally abut different blind stuff as well and they sometimes feature guide dogs for the blind among other things. http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/intouch/ -----Original Message----- From: gamers-boun...@audyssey.org [mailto:gamers-boun...@audyssey.org] On Behalf Of Che Sent: 27 April 2011 04:36 To: Gamers Discussion list Subject: Re: [Audyssey] The importance of patronage Hi Dark, I've heard from others the RNIB is a crusty joke as well, though that’s really all I know of them is hear say. Regarding blind adrenaline, we've not done nearly as much marketing in the U.K. as we should, but as soon as I finish our next game for the card room site sometime in the next two weeks, I'm gonna polish off a few small things in code on the site, then start some more aggressive marketing. at that point BA will not only be the site with the most online games for the blind to play, but also the card games with by far the most features per game, a fact that a lot of potential blind gamers out there don't know. I haven't done much to market BA really overall, as the site has been far more popular than I thought it would be to start with , and I know very little about what marketing options are available in the UK, advertising on UK sites aimed at the visually impaired, possible radio interviews, podcasts, etc. So if you have any suggestions where folks that patronize RNIB might frequent, I'd be glad to do my part to help them realize what is available in the wider world of accessible entertainment that can be had on the cheap. Take care, che -----Original Message----- From: dark Sent: Tuesday, April 26, 2011 10:09 PM To: Gamers@audyssey.org Subject: [Audyssey] The importance of patronage Hi. As people might know, I've been doing a lot of work on the audiogames.net database and something rather odd struck me. I'm finally adding in descriptions for the azabat games (not the least because the developer did send me the demo cd about a year ago and I stil haven't updated them). Azabat is the only developer of audiogames sold through the rnib. This is of course because the Azabat's aim, of providing nice old blind people with easy games to play at exaubitant prices (can you tell I'm not impressed!), goes along very much with the rnib, an organization who quite literally don't notice visually impared people under the age of 60 or so exist, mostly because younger people are less likely to give them donations in their will, ---- I'm serious! at a so called "information day" the rnib spent about two hours just talking about will donations to them, --- and most of the rest of the time saying how great they were providing "dayly living skills" services" the amount of times myself, or another member of my family (most recently my dad in a survay), has given them what for over this, whether it's about what books they record (sinse their main producer of accessible books in this country given that the government does bugger all), or about what services they provide, they really! don't like the idea that people younger than about 60, or who have interest outside knitting and braille crosswords exist (I'm serious, there are several amagazines devoted to knitting patterns alone, but nothing whatsoever on roleplay). And if you tell them this they ignore you (the survey lady slammed the phone down on my dad after he'd said this). Anyway, getting the wranting train under control,my point is azabat, dispite producing games which are no better (and in many case not as good), as others around even in the same catagory like the recently released pontes backgammon (lacking graphics but having online play), and all of the spoonbill and blind adrenaline type stuff, yet have a huge record in this country simply! because they have had publicity through the Royally nasty inhibition of the blind, aka the rnib (oooh, I made a funny!). This doesn't seem correct, but I am now wondering what can be done about it. The business of sending myself to site village, the uk tech show didn't really advance much unfortunately mostly due to booking costs and such, but possibly a more reasonable organization such as Guide dogs (who do a lot more than train dogs, ---- I've been skeeing, touring egypt, cycling and goodness knows what with their holiday crew in the past) would be open to discussion, especially sinse they do deal with blind people who aren't the sterriotypical poor old useless individuals the rnib think they are. I've already introduced a friend of mine who does voluntry tech support at a charity for helping disabled computer users in her local area to audiogames.net and pcs games so she can show people some of the fun things their computers will do. When i red The only computer games sold by the rnib" It made me actually pretty mad, so it's time to do something about it. Any suggestions for people to contact? ---- I'm not familiar with us or european organizations, but is there a stink we can kick up? Action for blind people here (another of the smaller but nicer groups), did a pole a while ago, maybe it'd be worth seeing if they will do something else? Imho this situation needs rectifying, and people need to know there are more and better developers out there than just Azabat, and games to appeal to all sorts of tastes. Beware the grue!
