I'm not sure Charles.

for "what is available" a quick look at audiogames.net or pcsgames.net is pretty conclusive that there is a lot out there, and I directed them to such.


i offered to put together a ful on presentation and head down to London to show them, but I got the response that most blind people were not interested in such things and it was a minority concern, and therefore not worth their time in promoting.

Beware the Grue!

So, maybe what you need is proof to back up your claims. Maybe, if enough feedback on what gamers are truly interested in, along with information showing the RNIB that such games and developers do indeed exist, were presented to the RNIB, with gamers letting the RNIB know that we would, indeed, buy such games from them if they make them available, the RNIB might get a clue.

Unfortunately Charles you've hit the nale on the head.

right from the age of 7 I've tried to point out to the Rnib that not all blind people are eldily, but they've taken small notice.

They for example refused to help or even offer suggestions on access to tabletop rp, they claimed that I was the only person who'd be interested in such things.

They had a similar response when i asked them about the possibility of brailling fighting fantasy gamebooks, and when I tried to get them to reccord more literature that would be favourable to younger people.

You can get braille knitting patterns from them, but they don't even considder the possibility someone would want a tactile role playing dice.

This is just what I mean about them.

the problem is in the Uk, they are the first port of call for anyone who loses their vision, and thus their word has a great deal of weight, which is why I find the fact that they refuse to acknolidge that other developers besides Azabat exist so frustrating.

All the best,

Dark.
