Hello fellow computer scientists:

The Reno chapter of the Nevada NFB has been working with a CS instructor in the development of making computer games accessible to the blind; as well as welcoming him on board as a chapter member representing the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR).

He is currently seeking volunteers who would be interested in trying out a bata version of a popular game that can be used by screen readers. The information is in the forwarded message below. Good luck and have fun.

Chun Chao
Northern Nevada NFB, Treasurer

The university of nevada in Reno recently developed an application called TextSL which allows visually impaired to access the popular virtual world of Second Life using a screen reader. A beta version of this application can be downloaded for free on: http://www.textsl.org

We are looking for volunteers who would be willing to participate in user studies in the Spring semester of 2009.

Sincerely, Eelke Folmer
