I was just contacted by someone who is a deaf gamer through the IGDA.
He sent a letter to the ESA and then sent the letter to IGDA, which
was sent to me. We should be seeing some new members very soon, as it
seems like [cc] has become the rallying call for game accessibility.
I say we run with it and make this [cc] issue something that cannot
be avoided any longer by the industry. I mean we know what needs to
be done thanks to Reid's work!

The Kotaku thread has been continued on Joystiq and Gamespot.
