speaking of...we should start collecting email addresses for places 
we'd like to send out the SIG newsletter to that gives a summary of 
the items that come up here and on gameaccessibility.com. it would be 
smart to send it out to as many people as we can, at least once per 
month.

so other address suggestions?

>>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.
>>
>>-Reid
