Thomas,

thanks for the link, the two universities in the UK I know of are:

node=186722&objectid=186721
http://www.abertay.ac.uk/Courses/CDetails.cfm?RID=1&CID=186

perhaps you could contact them direct and let us know?

cheers

I have been thinking about how to get "mainstream games" more
accessible, and maybe we need to approach colleges and other higher
education institutions  that teach game development to teach
Accessibility to the students.  If game developers are instructed on
how games can be made accessible, then maybe we can avoid some of the
problems that we have today.   There is a starting point using the
Guidelines for developing accessible games  at
http://gameaccess.medialt.no/guide.php.  Is anyone already teaching
Accessibility for Gaming in a college or University program?

Thank You,
