Hey, give me a way to make a voice-activated podcast and I will give you an audio adventure game! All I'm missing is the interactive controls.

I also have to say I love the idea of making a Play with Bats using solely echolocation! Crazy and awesome in equal measure!

Fantastic left-field addition to the back end of the round table.

Thanks Chris. If I figure out how to interact with an iPod in any meaningful way, I'll let you know.

That AGRIP (Accessible Quake) is awesome. Someone needs to port that to PocketPC now. If I had more time, I'd be tempted to pull out my old PQ3100 code and give it a shot.

Seriously, I should have known that this would have already been done for blind gamers. That'll teach me to search before I go opening my big mouth.

Also, I have a standing request to find someone a blind version of chess.

I just got myself a copy of the fantastic Katamari Damacy soundtrack in Akihabara, and it's making me realise that if that entire game had just been music, maybe getting closer or further away as you move, and the sounds of screaming pedestrians getting rolled up, I probably would have been just as happy without the visuals as with them.
