I know that I was suggesting that the best way to build the tools is through
experience which is building a game. Have to hire the people to build the
tools also isn't that how you get things done I don't think we have
currently any real set up that people would devote their time to build
tools. If they can they would be the only people because it's limited
stumbling over people with that talent in this online group here.

Unless there's a different way how do you get the people to build the tools?

I'm not exactly sure what you mean by reducing the cost of making games more
accessible... If what we do is create the avenue for people to pick up and
go with what we create I think we are selling ourselves short on a market
that we would be selling out on.

Somehow collaboration with the better I think getting companies to work with
us with their teams having those companies build schools with our experience
somehow and contributing a portion of sales or a small fee to our fun or
something. I don't know it just seems like selling out would be waste a lot
of hard work. If it's different please explain not want to get something

Cool thanks for taking a look at that documentary. As soon as I have the
complete package I can e-mail a link to it to be viewed.

Robert I'll view the film and see how we might use it if we can.
It's certainly something depending on how it works that we could
screen in an expo area during the accessibility day event.

I'm not sure about developing games and selling them I think we need
to build tools and example systems that reduce the cost of making
games more accessible. By lowering the cost+time delta and raising
the rhetoric accordingly you can close the gap but you can't do one
without the other.
