Thanks Richard! And don't worry about the pics... I was able to get some other ones that worked well. J

I am not sure who the presentation will be made available to after Gamefest, but if it is publically available, I'll make sure to send a link out to it.

Take care,

I won't be at the Gamefest but the best of luck with your presentation. I suddenly remember that I never replied your request for the blind-game pics, do you still need them? Please let us know how the presentation went :) Is is available for download afterwards?

Hey Everyone,

Official notice: I'll be giving a presentation at Microsoft's Gamefest this year in Seattle on August  14th at 2:30pm. The title is, "Expanding Your Audience through Accessibility."  The presentation's abstract is as follows:

Do you want your customers to play your games 30 years from now? How do you make a game that appeals to a wide range of players? How do you keep from losing players of different capabilities as they play through your game? This talk focuses on accessibility, and shares thoughts on how to make your game enjoyable by a wider demographic.

More information on it can be found here:

If you are attending Gamefest, please show up and introduce yourself... I'd love to meet you! J

Take care,
