Hello Folks,

I just wanted to drop a line and mention I think it was a very cool article, and I think you all have some incredible discussions here. I read as many as I can, and am always impressed with the thought that goes into the posting. Very high quality content from all of you.

And so, just as I have done with the QA sig I say unto thee: Bring me another! You're some great writers and there are some great accessibility stories out there to tell. So send them over to myself or David Wright, and let's get the word out.

The newsletter is one of your tools as a SIG to address the community and you have my full support in getting your content in there.

And don't forget to vote!
We announced the IGDA Candidates, and voting begins on the 14th, Valentines Day and Chinese New Year (a once in 70 years occurrence), so take a look over these folks and lets try and pick 5 form this awesome group of folks.

Great article! The Prospective Newsletter is a new format rather than the old text newsletter -- you are right it's looking really great!

Dragon Age will certainly be considered for the ELAN award shows "Most Accessible Mainstream Game of 2009" award -- it will be going against a number of games in a multitude of genres but certainly it's a very strong entry! This is the first time that an industry award show has picked up the torch of accessibility (believe me, I know...I've been arguing for shows to include this for years and years now and they put it into the show when finalizing their categories in November!). I really feel like all of us are moving in the right direction!

So good on you Mark for getting game accessibility into the newsletter in such a big way! You should be proud!

IGDA members should have just got an email about the new Feb issue of Prospective Newsletter. Looks great, (gets bigger every month). Anyway AbleGamers Accessibility Game of the Year award has a great 2 page story on the topic of the award and Dragon Age's accessibility plus. It is great to see game accessibility in the newsletter of IGDA. I am very proud.

Here is a link to the feb Newsletter...
