As a gamer with eye disability I'm delighted to read of this sort of work going on (though this is obviously not for my type of problem). Bravo to them!!
In my case it's not too bad but I struggle to keep up and I play everything on easy these days and use audio queues as much as I can where the eyes are bad and i'm not seeing it properly.
Interesting to hear of Kinect being used. I hadn't thought about it but if the new one is more accurate and responsive I can imagine it could be used in all sorts of ways to help.
It's great to know that people with disability are being considered in the game world more and more. I was concerned i'd have to give it up completely in a few years but maybe not
