Games for Me

One of the most frequently asked questions is this one:  What types of games do I like to play?

 

When I had enough sight, I used to play air hockey, some pickup basketball, some ice hockey, and the usual board games and accessible computer games.  Nowadays, I have limited my enjoyment to chess, and several accessible computer games.  What do I mean by accessible computer games?

 

Games on the computer with voice output.  In short, games that have a speaking facility that allows me to hear what is on the screen, hear what I type and enter, and feedback from my input.  

 

I am a definite games person.  I love things such as Battle Ship, Solitaire, word games, and of course chess.  I can no longer play air hockey but I am just dying for someone to develop an accessible air hockey game or something similar. 

 

I'm Donna J. Jodhan your friendly accessibility advocate wishing you a terrific day and inviting you to go out there and share my pleasure for games with others.  Visit www.aph.org to learn more about how blind persons play games.

  1. It's not air-hockey, but have your had a chance to play V.I. Tennis and V.I. Bowling on the PC, using a blue-tooth adapter and Wii Remotes? Huge fun!
