[games_access] wii game for blind and seeing kids available?

Hello,

at the games for Health Europe Conference they told me
that there are some blind gamers who have trouble.
Sorry I do not remind it in detail.

It was something like that blind people need balance training.
That is very important.

I would say, yes it can be difficult, but it is important that
they do balance training. Maybe a solution like dancetown.us
could be useful? They use some kind of bars around the dance mats.

Best regards,
Sandra

Great review, Javier!

I'd be really interested to hear what the blind community thinks of the game. What must be so hard to get over independently is the general lack of accessibility of the Wii console system menus. The instructions I reached from the review (all MP3 files with English and Dutch all dumped together in one file slightly confusingly) talks of possible system updates being needed, and for the user to select OKAY. Not very easy if you're visually impaired and are reliant upon the swishing pointer control of the Wii remote.

Also wonder how many people with more severe sight impairment will get on balancing on such a small surface. That may be my ignorance there. I know VI-Sports games can work very well, but this seems quite an ask of some people. Be great to learn more on people's experiences on this.

Oh my god! I have the game on my hand right now!! xDDD

I though, some months ago, I just signed up to be noticed when game released, but It seems that I had already ask for one that day xD

I will review it.
