>   Greetings,
>   My name is Che Martin and I am a blind player 
> of hl2.  This is accomplished by
>using a piece of software that turns images into decipherable sounds.  You can
>get an overview of this software if you wish at www.seeingwithsound.com.
>   I am attempting to get a project off the ground so that blind users of this
>software can use hl2 to train with the software.
>   I am looking for a couple of very basic 
> levels, maybe two or three rooms each
>with simple black and white textures so the user doesn't get overloaded with
>visual information.  Also, two audio modifications would help tremendously,
>having a player generate a sound when they move so they can be tracked, and
>possibly a sound generated when you have a target in your aiming reticle.
>   I have some background with visual basic and 
> c+, and I think I can do some of
>the coding if someone can point me in the right direction, but for level
>creation, I definately need someone that can see.
>   If you are interested in helping with this 
> project, or know someone who might
>be, please let me know.  You can email me directly at che at tridigitalbb.com if
>you like.
>   The main purpose of this project is to help folks understand and train with
>the seeing with sound software, and hopefully 
>have some fun while doing it.  If
>you would like to be a part of this worthwhile effort, we welcome any and all
>   Thanks,
