Thomas,

my paper "Communication with symbols, from the web to the internet and
beyond" was published in Journal of Assistive Technologies volume 2
issue 3 September 2008,
and describes "The Peepo Project" in which over 200 people with
learning disabilities were assessed over two years, and many online
games published with their help.
This research project was conceived and managed by me, funded £150,000
by The Big Lottery, which was jointly match funded by Lambeth College
and Wandsworth Borough Council.
archive of homepage: http://web.archive.org/web/20070929033725/http://www.peepo.co.uk/

copies of the paper together with source code for all the games is
available privately on request.

http://www.peepo.com has for over ten years led the field in
accessible online open-source games, and web standards continue to be
a hallmark of accessibility.
In order to help develop a more general understanding of accessible
online games, I have recently considered it necessary to host a
mainstream game:
the ancient oriental game of Go.
Go is considered too abstract by the majority of the population in
western civilisation,
and a range of visualisations are being incorporated to broaden
interest and understanding.
Learning disabilities remains central to our design consideration.

comments are very welcome.

kind regards
