I realise there have been many questions regarding how to use steam lately, some of which were asked by me. One of the great things about my job, is that I get to research and write about accessibility, games and the like whenever I have time. So this week I plan on writing of a guide for steam, and possibly use either skulgirls, or legacy of the duelist as a game example. I will have the guide done by this week, however I can only post it once I have my PC issue with the forum thinking I am a bot resolved. Would people be interested in this ? I'm going to do it regardless, I'm just curious .
an updated guide on how to use Steam I am interested.
greetings and thanks.
I'd also be interested in this, as while I can provide some info I don't know how accurate it'll be lately.
I would be interested in a guide--particularly if it takes the user from having no account and not having steam on their system to playing a game.
What are you going to change from the original guide? It boils down to install steam, put -no-dwrite in the desktop icon and learn to use object and screen review in nvda to navigate around the steam window. We still can't invite players to games since the UI for inviting does not use the settings that you tell steam to launch with.
I'd be interested too, I've gotten it to work but maybe I'd learn something new
I would be interested in this as well. I have a working account and have Steam working on my Mac, but it would be great to have an updated version on how to get this up and running on Windows as well.
I'm doing some extra playing around at the moment, and will also be covering cases where the mobile app is useful . This question gets asked by so many people at the moment, so I'm hoping it will be useful .
At slj, are you using a virtual machine, or the steam app for mac? Just curious.
I'm using the Steam app for Mac. It is not very accessible, but I can log in, and download the few games I have using the webside, or if I remember correctly, using the IOS app. I haven't used the Steam app for long time.
I too would love a guide that takes me from never having had any interaction with Steam, to playing a game. How comprehensive are you planning on making this guide? Also, a user said there is another guide that exists, could somebody post a link to that one so I can do some light reading and testing?
I would love to be able to play Yugioh, I love games like that.
I've heard the You Don't Know Jack games are available on Steam and, while not completely accessible (Jack Attack anyone?) that series remains one of my all-time favorites. As such I'd love to get my grubby little paws on them again.
I'm in the middle of writing it, and I have messaged the admin regarding my forum problem. Soon as that's fixed and I can log on with my computer, I will post it.
Well, I know my Steam guide isn't really perfect but I believe it's covering everything. What else do you want to add to your guide?
BTW, inviting to games is possible through Steam client. Just click on your friend and click right mouse button on the one you want to invite. If someone will invite you just go to the chat windows and click on 'JOIN'
Thanks for the link. Now all I need is life to leave me alone for like a week so I can game out hard like I used to! Damn job and GF lol.
Happy to help. (If you need an excuse just say you need to play a card game to save the world.)
Thanks for that Lyron. Going to give that a try sometime.
