Just posted this on our blog at http://www.igda.org/accessibility/ 
with a cross post at gameaccessibility.com -- hopefully when I start 
writing the newsletters we can spam them out to various news sources 
to make the first steps toward getting things out to the world more!!

>Hey all,
>
>SiN: Episodes released by Ritual Entertainment (my previous employeer)
>a couple weeks ago features closed captioning. Unfortunately, due to a
>bug, it's actually missing some key dialog, but for the most part it
>does have captions for sounds and dialog. So that makes it the 4th
>game.

>Unfortunately, I'm sure 99% of the players won't know that. There's no
>advertisement of this feature at all. I only mention that because I'm
>trying to think of ways to spread the idea of CC more. It's not enough
>for me to write about it over at http://gamescc.rbkdesign.com/, my
>site only gets a small number of people visiting it. But if games
>start advertising that as a feature, more and more people will see it
>and then eventually, it'll become expected and standard in games, I
>hope.
