Great spot, Sandra.

To be predictable - I'm not fond on some of the language ("sight
handicap") - but I think the games could be useful in some areas certainly.

As for Ubisoft wishing to add subtitles - lets hope they'll be easy to
follow - and also describe sounds and music - who is speaking - how they are
speaking and so on. Excellent article here:
