Hi, I'm Steve Saylor. I'm Blind and I play Video Games. I'm a Toronto based YouTube Gamer, Podcaster, Graphic Designer, College Professor all while being blind! In 2015, I started a series on YouTube called "Blind Gamer" where I fuse humour with my passion for playing video games while being very bad at it. I've been described as “The Best Worst Gamer” and “YouTube Greatness, Sight Unseen.” I've been featured on the CBC, Accessible Media “AMI-tv” and "Right This Minute TV." Here's what's even cooler, I've been called “Wonderful” by Captain Kirk himself, William Shatner! I'm also an advocate for Accessible Gaming speaking at several conferences for Game Developers and consulting with them about their future projects. This Podcast will showcase games I enjoy and review from an accessible perspective and news about accessibility within video games. As well as have conversations with Game Developers, Accessibility Advocates and awesome creative people.

Great passion and funny
I've been following Steve since his first podcasts (something like 10 years?) with Black Shadow. Steve is a great guy, passionate, and funny (and had some great writing/stories back in the day - go find his Black Shadow work!). Steve getting into accessibility and gaming is great. He has his own vision issues (hence the title of the podcast) and loves playing video games and now appears to be focusing and advocating much more for accessibility in video games. He brings his passion for gaming and equal opportunity to the podcast. I think it's a really great fit and look forward to what's to come.
