I think it's a great place to preach. A lot of gamers may have a
disability that they didn't know games or hardware could help with.
Like DJ, our newest member, it was only recently that she realized she
needed to speak out more about the lack of CC in games. I had played
games for about 10 years before the idea of CC in games hit.

By having a presence at E for Everyone we can "wake people up" who
never realized before they could benefit from accessibility features.
The industry as a whole isn't going to change unless there are loads
of cash in the accessibility sector or a huge outcry of demand from
the customers. A place like E for Everyone is a place to encourage
gamers to demand more from their publishers/developers.
