although one can offer languages as an option, it's also possible for
this to be done automatically, using systemLanguage, though outside
the internet I am not sure how this would be implemented in practice...
http://www.peepo.co.uk uses systemLanguage to provide a variety of
European Languages without the user even being aware.
Though of course people abroad need access to the option to choose.

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:
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.
