They're a bit closer to the mark than the AFB article was. I've found it very interesting to see the huge range of people writing about PG's accessibility, including lots of organisations that haven't turned their eye to gaming before. Nice illustration of gaming's importance for access to culture.

Expanding possibilities for people with vision loss


The September issue of AccessWorld<http://afb.us11.list-manage1.com/track/click?u=bd3c8fefc9f905f5ccf41c577&id=633e8ff8e9&e=0122cec033> is now available on our website.

This issue features:

  *   Editor's Page: Pokemon GO: Elevating the Conversation Around Accessible Gaming<http://afb.us11.list-manage2.com/track/click?u=bd3c8fefc9f905f5ccf41c577&id=76408fa528&e=0122cec033>

  *   An Accessibility Review of the Fire TV with VoiceView from Amazon, by Bill Holton<http://afb.us11.list-manage.com/track/click?u=bd3c8fefc9f905f5ccf41c577&id=2c5229ee99&e=0122cec033>
If you own an Apple TV and wish you could also accessibly stream Prime Video on your home TV, the $40 cost of a Fire TV makes it an affordable option. The Fire TV VoiceView Preview is by no means a finished product. But it does most of what it needs to do to allow you to watch Prime Videos or accessibly purchase and play a movie or TV episode.

  *   The Current State of ChromeVox Next (Beta), a Screen Reader for Chrome OS, by Aaron Preece<http://afb.us11.list-manage.com/track/click?u=bd3c8fefc9f905f5ccf41c577&id=9d62a60a2b&e=0122cec033>
Some needed commands are not yet implemented and there are issues with some controls and applications in this beta version, but even in its current state, ChromeVox Next can enhance the Chromebook user experience for people with vision loss.

In this article, we'll focus on electronic magnifier products with the goal of helping you identify the features you need, and answering the question: given so many options, who needs a standalone electronic magnifier, anyway?

  *   The Aware Audible Proximity Solution Navigation App: An Interview with Rasha Said, App Creator and Founder of Sensible Innovations, by Aaron Preece <http://afb.us11.list-manage.com/track/click?u=bd3c8fefc9f905f5ccf41c577&id=905ed9c3f2&e=0122cec033>
The Aware app is a new indoor navigation solution from Sensible Innovations. To learn more about the app's development, I spoke with Rasha Said, the founder of Sensible Innovations and the mind behind the Aware app.

National Braille Press and Anna Dresner have, once again, produced a manual that many blind and low vision iOS device users will find indispensable as a guide for learning or refining their understanding of the iPhone and iOS 9. The book is wonderfully organized and blissfully clear.
