Gamespot has a pretty fascinating story today. It's about a visually-impaired gamer who is suing Sony for allegedly violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. The player wants Sony to make online games accessible with features such as high-contrast graphics and audio compasses. The suit has triggered a fair amount of debate online over a compelling issue - blind gamer rights.
I once wrote a story about games for the blind. One player created a program called Shades of Doom, a first person shooter played entirely with audio cues. The blind gamer mod-community is highly-organized and skiled - maybe they can create modifications for some of Sony's online titles.
