GAConf Winners, Be My Eyes Groups & Out of Sight Event

In this episode, hosts Steven Scott and Shaun Preece discuss the winners of the Game Accessibility Awards Conference (GAConf), which took place this week. They highlight the achievements of games like Forza Motorsport, which won several awards for its exceptional accessibility features, including the AAA Excellence Award and the Best Blind/Low Vision Accessibility Award.

Steven and Shaun also delve into the topic of Microsoft’s approval for running Windows on Apple Silicon Macs, specifically the M3 processor. Additionally, they address the quirky news story about the U.S. Embassy statement to the UK government regarding the controversial suggestion of adding salt to tea, which has sparked humorous debates on both sides of the Atlantic.

Also, as promised over three times already, they finally play a demo by listener Lena, who explains how to set up and use the new Groups feature within Be My Eyes.

And, Roger Khouri from London, Ontario, joins the guys to talk about Out of Sight and their upcoming 16th-anniversary event. He explains how Out of Sight provides a welcoming online space for the blind community to engage in games, workshops, and social interactions through the TeamTalk audio platform.
