Re: Anyone else hate Misha?

Would non-speaking deaf be a better term than? It's hard to see how "electively deaf mute" would be better than deaf mute, even if it wasn't too cumbersome and confusing to use.

Re: Anyone else hate Misha?

The correct term to use is 'voice off'. How come I can't find any search results for that then? Your Google-fu is insufficiently powerful. Google "voice-off" and ASL together for better hits. Sometimes "voices-off". I added ASL to the search term, but everything I found was about immersion in ASL c...

Re: An option for the blind?

So I hacked together an accessible version, but I can't post it because of the no derivative works thing.

Re: Adaptive technology

I remember seeing one video where an armless woman said that she didn't want prosthetic arms because her feet are her hands and trying to use prosthetic would inherently be clumsier.

Re: Why does shizune hate lily?

I didn't say that she would learn it, just that she would understand the concept.

Re: Why does shizune hate lily?

Even people who have been blind since birth understand visual concepts like perspective. Understanding concepts like "moving hands" is much, much easier. I imagine manual alphabet really sucks, since doing anything letter by letter takes forever. That's one thing that really stuck out at me in the f...

Re: Ask!

Am I to assume that the lack of an answer
means that the question has no good answer or one we don't want to reveal. Move on.

Re: Ask!

It's stated that the canes are retractable, so one could argue that they're not fully extended in the in-game graphics. Well Sunglasses Boy's cane definitely isn't retractable. Nor is it a support cane. As for Lilly's cane, it's never completely visible (in fact it doesn't show up in any CGs or vid...

Re: Ask!

Why are the white canes so short? In Lilly's sprites, it looks like the cane is barely waist height, and in the art class CG, Sunglass Boy's cane is also abnormally short.

Yeah, I find the assumption in the poll that everyone is straight or gay really frustrating.

It also assumes everyone is male or female.

Re: Starting Let's Play. Would like some constructive critic

So several people have already explained why you shouldn't do an LP of KS, but I thought I should point out a practical difficulty as well: Do you really want to read out 480k words? That's longer than the Lord of the Rings trilogy!
