I suppose one fairly obvious accessibility features many games feature, espcially in Europe, is the facility to choose between different languages. Wouldn't this be nice to see in the future?:


CHOOSE YOUR LANGUAGE OPTIONS:

English
English (simplified)
French
Chinese
Japanese
......etc.

Subtitles
Subtitles (closed captioned)
Subtitles (sign language)


This admittedly links with cost implications that designers are well aware of. Why not open games up with an open source accessibility layer? Get other people to do the hard work, then reap the benfits of an increased market.
