Hi Greg,

Welcome! Good to have one more audio guy on board :) Some time ago Michelle
and I gave a presenation at GDC Austin titled "When Audio IS the
experience - Games for the visually impaired"
(https://www.cmpevents.com/GDAU07/a.asp?option=C&V=11&SessID=5857). If
you're interested, I can send you the presentation.

Hi All,
My name is Greg Rahn and I'm a newbie here. I discovered this sig as I
was doing research for a presentation I am doing at the Casual Games
Conference this Friday in Seattle. http://seattle.casualconnect.org/

My session started out as Designing Audio Concurrently With Game
Design. (as opposed to "hey let's add sound to our game now that it's
done"). I came across accessibility, and after learning about all that
is going on around accessibility in games, I have expanded my talk to
include this. It sort of of swung the pendulum even further making my
talk more like, Designing Audio AS Game Design...

Anyway, I've culled thru some of your archives and have learned some
things eg; "sight disabled" rather than "blind" etc...
I'm excited by all of this and hopefully I can help raise some
awareness about accessibility in the Casual Game space.

I'll let you know how it goes. If any of you happen to be attending,
be sure to stop by and say hi.

btw...nice work on Terraformers Thomas.
