Hi Michelle and everybody,

I am enclosing the booklet of abstracts for the conference in Barcelona,
so that you can see what papers were presented on the game / virtual
worlds accessibility strand and their approach. I also hope to have
links to most full presentations by mid-next week, and I will also
forward them to the list.

On the meantime I am also enclosing a link to the presentation I
delivered explaining a pilot study about the reception of captions in
game subtitling that I will be carrying out in the new year, in case it
may be of interest.


Kind regards,
