Hello,

what will happen when gamer go to the court, because of discrimination?
That could be very interesting.

There was one case where a deaf person got his right because
of missing subtitle on a DVD. Country was Austria.

Because of the CRPD they might get help from human rights organization.


Best regards,
Sandra

no; blind gamers are excluded from mainstream games, with a few exceptions
with help of mods like AudioQuake. The situation could become much better if
developers would implement solutions which AQ (and Terraformers) showed can
be done.
