That's why, to get a little bit off topic here (and for that I apologize in advance), I don't like a lot of the voc rehab agencies in the US. They teach their clients to use JAWS, which in itself is all well and good. Where the problem lies is that they don't necessarily let said clients know that there are in fact other options available even if they do know about them. I got the vocal equivalent of a raised eyebrow from my rehab counselor when I told her I'd switched over to Window-Eyes and have been quite happy with it now for about four years. And I've gotten quite a bit more than a vocal raised eyebrow from others, both in voc rehab and not, as though I'd committed some inexcusable transgression. So I've experienced some of what Dark has.
They're coming to take me away, ha-haaa!

This is where getting the word out about what's available come in. On the other hand, if an organization has a closed mind, and they ignore anything that does not fit their? concepts of what blind people can and cannot do, there's a problem, and it's not up to the game developers to solve. It's up to professionals and customers, and here's what I think is the key, who know what they're talking about through hands-on experience, to work on opening the closed minds. For an organization to deny, through ignorance, the existence of developer's products that do not fit into their mold of blind people is reprehensibly inexcusable.

Hi Jeremy.

To answer your question, Azabat's aime of providing games for computer novices is not made expressly clear on the site, though it does appearr in their faq and other documentation, see http://www.azabat.co.uk/ to see for yourself.

This issue however is compounded by the fact that according to the Rnib, azabat are the only! company producing audio comptuer games, indeed what brought Azabat back to my mind was that the lady doing guide dog training at the same time I am, ---- who worked as a professional programmer and database designer before losing her site was asking about audio computer games and told only Azabat existed, and was indeed quite frustrated sinse she was previously a pretty high capacity gamer.

I know the company Gamevial based in scotland were told a very similar thing when they initially asked the Rnib about making some of the web flash games they make accessible, ---- indeed until I phoned them and had words they didn't even think anyone had attempted audio games that moved from a first person perspective, ---- though being as they had quite limited exposure from the Rnib and from others thought that the experiment they tried failed.

Beware the grue!

Dark.
