Here are some resources that may be helpful:


Game accessibility guidelines  A straightforward reference for inclusive 
game design

http://gameaccessibilityguidelines.com/


The AbleGamers Charity

http://www.ablegamers.com/


Some iOS games have been made accessible to blind people. Exploring the 
Applevis.com site may prove helpful in finding developers and/or 
game-players. But of course, accessibility of games goes far beyond 
assisting blind people.


As for comics, here's one site I had handy:

http://comicsempower.com/

[Note that audio started playing immediately for me.]


I'm wondering whether comics made using SVG can be made accessible using 
accessible SVG guidance. Perhaps, if that's of interest, others can 
confirm/discuss.


Best,

Jennifer
