yes, actually I tested the SeeingWithSound software myself two years ago, it 
is also in the appendix of our first white paper I think. It is really cool 
but as a sighted person I couldn't motivate myself enough to really learn to 
use it for game play. I have also been in touch with the developer via 
e-mail.
