Increasingly, web-access is the way to get hold of information. Thus if your
game instructions can be found on-line (as with the very lovely one-switch
game "Alice Amazed" here: http://www.michi.nu/games/alice/index.php) -
chances are that disabled gamers will have a better chance of accessing
them. People requiring screen magnification, speech readers, increased text
size etc. will find instructions in HTML format easier to cope with than the
printed word in many instances. Of course web-access comes into play here
Fairly simple pointers for designing accessible web-pages.
Hope this rambling answer clears this up a bit...
