Welcome, Greg. Typically I feel my reply would be better kept as a direct email to Greg, but I thought this information would be valuable to the managers of the SIG (for targeting audiences or initiatives).

I, too, found this SIG while working on an [unpublished] project about sound as game design. My interest lead me to attend the Games Accessibility Arcade and I later found the SIG through the IGDA website.
