Subject: [games_access] Good News from Texas. 

I had a meeting with my instructor and he is the director of the department.
He has ask to begin to develop a "Game Accessibility Workshop" for this fall
semester!  Also, we want me to give a presentation to the Introduction Games
Development class.  The workshop will be one day for 3 weeks, I won't be
able to cover everything related to the subject, but can anyone of you tell
me what should be cover for sure? ?  Hopefully, someday this can turn into a
real 16 weeks class, and with the help from the group it could turn into
something great!  Send be your ideas and advice from the group will be

Thank You, 

Tom Roome
