Hello,

one very big big big prejudice about Game Accessibility
seems to be:

* Games are designed to be played in a certain way.
=> There should be no possibility to change them.
=> Gamers who face barriers should not play it.
=> Gamers who love the story, but do not like to learn fighting, should play
another game.
=> When you cannot finish a game, you should not play it.
=> Game are ment to achive something, and finishing a game is a part of
this.

I would really love to know what you think about this.



FYI: Situation in Germany
Well, at the Gamescom they said they are highly interested ....
Looks like this was a lie.

I also have some contacts who say: "Wow that is so important, why do they
not do it?"
But they would never say this in public.

So activity and interest is 0 in Germany.


Best regards,
Sandra
