Current implementations of DDR specify steps the user must match exactly to score points. Someone recently introduced matching silhouettes but it is essentially the same thing. The step files are synchronized with the music using a simple offset and rate. Thus the music has to have a strictly fixed beat and (practically) has to be shipped with the game resulting in copyright issues.

While listening to Anindya Bhattacharyya (Bapin) at "The Magic of Technology for the Deaf-Blind Population" workshop in Raleigh today I starting thinking again about Morse code. Bapin was lamenting the high cost of Braille displays. The problem, as with most assistive technology, is low volume. You can buy a great laptop for less than $1k but a Braille display to go with it is going to cost several thousand. He told about students they train at Helen Keller National Center for the Deaf-Blind having to wait for years to get the equipment they need.
