Will do. Will get a short-bit on the work SpecialEffect and the Accessible GameBase have been doing, plus some of their fledgling tie ups with other members on the list.

Try and get it to you Wednesday.

All the best,

Barrie

It would be great to see a nice collection of short articles describing what the different groups that people in the SIG belong to like a summary of key activities from last year and what's coming up next for the groups. It would also be great to see a summary of the Spain conference that just happened! Think of this as an nice way to let IGDA members know about all the different groups that are represented in the SIG! :)

Attention all SIG Members!


The IGDA Perspectives Newsletter needs content for its January issue on Game Accessibility. Through this issue we hope to help bridge the knowledge gap about how to increase the accessibility of games that exists between disability groups and game developers and publishers. We are looking for pieces of any length including, but not limited to, the following topics:

- Gamers with Disabilities
- Relevant tools.
- Benefits of using game accessibility features.
- Implementing game accessibility features.
- Closed captioning in games.
- Blind/vision impaired technologies in games.
- Quality of life for disabled game developers.
- Strategies for working with game accessibility.
- Game success stories.

Please send article pitches to Editor-in-Chief Beth Aileen Lameman (beth at bethaileen.com) by December 20th. Final articles are due by January 1st.
