Indeed! I have some contacts at Ubisoft and I will see if I can help Mark get in touch with someone to interview and confirm the way they did the captioning. I'll send out a Press Release from the SIG if it is truly [cc]

Could it be finally possible after all these years that another company has figured out that captioning is so important? The people I know at Ubisoft are IGDA board members and/or SIG and Chapter Chairs so I KNOW that I've read them the riot act about accessibility. :) Not saying I did this -- not at all. Just that maybe all of our work trying to communicate the importance of game accessibility is resulting in some action!!

these are mediocre times and people are
losing hope. it's hard for many people
to believe that there are extraordinary
things inside themselves, as well as
others. i hope you can keep an open
