   There is a new player in the video assistance arena called CrowdViz, and

   for via in-app purchase.

   - 64 Oz. Games Promotes Braille Literacy and Fun At the Same Time, by
   Jamie Pauls

   As you prepare to spend time with those you care about this holiday
   season, why not visit 64 Oz. Games and purchase some accessibility kits for
   games that you and yours can play together. It is evident that Richard and
   Emily Gibbs have a lot of energy and enthusiasm for what they do, and they
   have only just gotten started making accessibility kits for games that the
   blind and sighted can play together. Let's give them our support!
