Lynsey Graham - I'm a designer at Blitz Games. The division of the company I work in develops games for the 360, PS3, Wii, but we also have a division focussing on 'serious games'. Although I appreciate that not all games will be accessible for all people, I would like to see gaming become broader in appeal and accessibility, because...well, variety never killed anyone.
So far my practical contribution to accessibility in mainstream gaming has been to make sure that the subtitles for Dead to Rights Retribution were as clear and comprehensive as possible, with characters and dialogue sources being defined along with key sound effects. It wasn't quite as comprehensive as I would have liked (would have like some more of the sound effects subtitled) but it was a start.

John Bannick here.
I'm Chief Technology Officer for 7-128 Games.
I'm one of the folks who designs and codes our games.
We're small, but we've got over 20 blind and/or motion-impaired
accessible games out there, with more to come.
The SIG, especially Barrie's very specific critiques, has been helpful
in telling us what features to add in that respect.
