Gaming disabilities?

Hello all. I was curious how many of you out there have some sort of disability (less than 10 fingers, colorblindness, etc) that hinders your ability to play some games. How often do you run across a game where you it is an issue? Do you feel that developers often or rarely make accommodations for your "disability"?

I've seen a few colorblind options in game menus. Seems like it would be a pretty easy thing to adjust to.

I'm deaf, but I use processors to hear.
On games without captions, it's hard to understand what they're saying.

I have colorblindness, but it doesn't really affect my game that much unless there's a puzzle or directions or something that's based on color.

I have an inability to multitask that cripples me in RTS's and bullet hell shooters. Pity me!

I'm colorblind. No effect that I've noticed, although I don't notice some inventory-type things because they're in green/yellow or purple/blue format.

Not sure if a disability. In any shooter, i find myself constantly reloading the weapons even if i only fired a single shot.

I lost many times because of that.

Hehe, I think its a pretty common problem. I've been getting slightly better at not doing that, but its hard sometimes.
