I've just read through the ACE Centre Advisory Trust's document:

"Making software inclusive and digital publications accessible : Guidelines 
for software developers and publishers" by Andrew Lysley and David Colven.

It's a superb resource, and well worth a look:

It will be great when we have something like this, very specifically aimed 
at accessible gaming. Great work, David & Andrew.

Hi

I've been lurking on the list for some time now but not had the space to
contribute.  I think the Microsoft survey results published as a report
last year  "Accessible Technology in Computing­Examining Awareness, Use,
and Future Potential" may be useful ammunition when talking to developers,
particularly when talking about how nearly all of us would benefit from
assistive technology at some time in out lives.

I would also value the groups comments on a document I have recently
revised on writing 'Inclusive' software.  You can download it from:

I am now working on re-writing a document (hopefully available in the next
few weeks) on writing programs specifically for switch users. I'll let you
know when it is ready for comments.

You may also be interested in the GameOn project at the ACE Centre (we
didn't pinch the title - just coincidence).
