[games_access] SIG Meeting! skype?

We have tried Skype before -- the trouble is that for anyone with a hearing disability and/or trouble with speech or speaking in another language, the voice stuff doesn't help.

I'm open to using something other than MSN -- you can save conversations in Skype, correct? I mean text conversations? I'm thinking that we'll need to just reply on the text chat until we know more about how accessible things are on that platform.

Don't forget, everyone, to send me your schedules. Right now it looks like we have a couple days that work for everyone so far so that's a good start!

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
