Edit: This turned into quite a long post. TLDR: Please don't ask silly questions that can be found on google, what you hear is what you get, and I hope you enjoy and leave constructive feedback if you enjoy yourself.
So since hardly any blind players know just how usable and reasonably accessible Forza Motorsport 7 is, I decided to start up a small little let's play audio edition.
Rather than mess with getting it up on youtube (as I'm not looking for the subscribers nor am I really wanting to mess around with copyright related things, like game music), I'm throwing it up on any audio for folks to, hopefully, enjoy.
Before I get into the nuts and bolts, let me clarify a few things.
What it is: A let's play for folks to view, in audio, how I race, what I do in specific situations and how the game progresses. For people to sit back and listen to it as if it were a podcast, for folks who may not have an xbox one and are interested in racing or vehicles and, most certainly, a place for people to leave constructive feedback about how I could improve my commentary, questions on exactly how, for instance, an assist works.
What it is not: A place to ask where to get forza motorsport 7, if I know how to crack it, if I know how to turn on my xbox with narrator, if I know what the menu items are (this can come later, perhaps, but the menu system in this game is so vast I can't make a guide on my own). If I also know how to play (insert game here), if I know what the menus of (insert game here). If this can be played on your computer, where to get an xbox controller. Please don't ask. You'll be ignored. The answers to all but a few of these can easily be found on google. Sorry for making this section so huge but I don't want this topic turning into a thread of questions that a 2 second google search will net you.
Back on topic!
My end goal is to split it up into one segment for each event - (or division, as it were) assuming that I do the shortest races possible. There may be occasional deviations from this - tonight, for instance, I'm debating just doing a free play race and driving around, showing exactly how various assists work and how they function when they're on or off, how I actually drive (assuming it isn't raining), and what the various controls are. I already have quite a long recording made of most of this - and for those curious, it can be found here. It is too large for any audio so I hope folks enjoy. Please disregard me speaking far too close into the microphone - at times - that has since been fixed.
I'd just like to shed more light on this game as the go to seems to be Mortal Kombat and Killer instinct, not that that is a bad thing. I'm also a huge racing fan so there is that.
I hope folks enjoy it. I uploaded part 1 - which started with a minor mishap. It felt a little rushed so in part 2 I'll try and explain things in a bit more detail as I go along.

Also note that there is no audio editing going on here nor will there be. I do not equalize things - what you hear is what you get - and this is not going to be 100% professionally done, which is yet one more reason why I'm not going on youtube. I don't have the money (much less use) for a mixer, blue yetty, or any of the other fancy desk microphones. If this upsets and angers you, please move on
Please enjoy and share with friends! More content coming very soon!
