Hi Dis,

Welcome to the list. My name is Richard van Tol, I'm 29 and from The Netherlands. Here's my bio:

I'm is a Ph.D. student at the University of Portsmouth (England), researching game audio design. I have a Audio Engineer diploma, a M.A. in Audio Design, and I teach several courses on game audio design at the Utrecht School of the Arts (Netherlands). I've been involved in game accessibility since 2001, having developed several blind-accessible games such as Drive, Dark and The Curb Game, as well as many research prototypes. I'm also is co-founder of http://www.AudioGames.net, the biggest online archive/community website for gamers, developers and researchers focusing on audio games (games based on sound - without visuals). I also work parttime at the Bartiméus Accessibility Foundation. Here I lead, together with Sander (who's also on the list) the Game Accessibility project (http://www.game-accessibility.com - please drop in sometime!), which is a funded project which focuses on a R&C (Resource&Community) website about game accessibility.

...erm, so far for the formal introduction, nice to have you on board! Oh, I don't have a visual disability myself, if you were wondering...

  Hello all,


  I have been on this list awhile now and have never posted. I have Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and I am the creator of a website for gamers with disabilities called D-GAMER, the address is http://d-gamer.com. It has been around for sometime but has never taken off much. I took it down for maybe a year and a half, mainly because I didn't like the design and at the time it was hard finding information on accessible gaming. It is in kind of in a blog format and has some reviews. Eventually it will be packed full of information.


  I would love for you all to check it out. I highly respect your opinion and feedback, so please let me know what you think. Also, if you would like to submit any news or anything else there is a place for that.


  Thank you very much and I hope to hear from you.


  Corey 'Dis' Krull



  I will be posting my thoughts here more often.
