Accessibility for Blind Gamers
|Reported by:||SF/superblindman||Owned by:|
My name is Brandon Cole, and I am a totally blind gamer. I have succeeded in playing several mainstream games, and was featured in an article about people like me, seen here. http://www.polygon.com/features/2013/8/6/4550490/blind-games-rock-vibe
I mention all this to demonstrate how much a request like this means to me. We blind gamers are few, but very passionate. As such, I recently wrote a blog about how I believe every single point and click adventure game could actually be made completely accessible and playable to blind players using a relatively simple interface. I have since been contacted by a couple people on this, and they suggested that while this would be difficult to pull off as a standalone helper application as I first envisioned it, your emulator with some slight modifications might be the perfect platform on which to make this happen. I humbly request that you read the blog, a link to which will be posted below, as it contains my ideas as they originally formulated in my head, and please do contact me if there are any questions, or if you think this might be a possibility. Being able to play all these great games would mean a lot to me and other blind gamers. Here is that link.
Thanks again for any feedback this generates, positive or negative. Just going down the paths I'm recommended.
