Reid how do we go about getting those organizations to start voicing their
opinion?  I'm interested just learning how to do the I'm sure you guys know
I think.  Great idea though.  Is it available to download now and start
using XNA?  Where do you download it?  I guess Microsoft.

I wondered if it were possible to create captioning tools for it as
well. I think I saw somewhere that currently the XNA tools won't allow
people to create custom apps or tools (only games). However, if there
is enough demand they may include the ability to create them.

If we create enough buzz about wanting to do that, and maybe get the
guys from Retro Remakes (all the participants) to voice their opinions
about it, perhaps we can get MS to allow us to create accessibility
tools for other XNA devs to use.
