Greetings All

This may be slightly off-topic for web accessibility, but runs in a 
parallel vein and may be of interest to list members.

The following URI is a Wired News article on computer games that have 
been modified or written for use by the blind (audio substitution).
<http://www.wired.com/news/games/0,2101,66879,00.html>

It would be nice to see multi-sensory versions emerge, or at least 
different interfaces for the same game so that any can participate together.

With the large number of games now played online, maybe we will see this 
merging into the sphere of web accessibility to produce truly inclusive 
online gaming experiences.

Cheers
