Ouch! isn't it? It intrigued me until I saw the price. ;[ I expected it to cost around $100 to $150 but $400 is just OUCH!

Hey guys,

I was wondering if anyone had an experience with these sort of items. I just
stumbled upon this - the Orbitouch Keyless
Keyboard<http://www.orbitouch.com/>.
Are these things easy to use/worth investing in/and so on?

Thanks!

Good morning (or afternoon) Everyone!

It's time for our first weekly topic!!

"How could we define a minimum accessibility standard that is easy to
implement for all game developers? Compare this with including alternative
text for all images on a website ? a technically easy thing to do, if you
just remember to do
it!"<http://gameaccesssig.forumotion.com/t2-january-24-2010-how-could-we-define-a-minimum-accessibility-standard-that-is-easy-to-implement-for-all-game-developers#2>


What are your thoughts? Is it a simple list of must haves? Does it vary by
game? Are games too diverse to have a "one size fits all" type of minimum?



Please go to the forums, register, and post your
thoughts<http://gameaccesssig.forumotion.com/t2-january-24-2010-how-could-we-define-a-minimum-accessibility-standard-that-is-easy-to-implement-for-all-game-developers#2>.
Remember, the highlights and conclusion of this discussion *will be posted
on the website* so it's important that we make these topics a worth while
read.

AND YES! We actually do get visitors to the site everyday, and so providing
more and more meaningful content it a must.



Thanks everyone!
