Re: accessible games on android



Hi keekee23,

I think that unfortunately there are little games for Android that are accessible. We have a student project about developing a toolset that facilitates the development of accessible games for blind people for Android smartphones and tablets, that's why we know.

Anyway, perhaps you might find the games we are developing interesting. So far three games have already been developed using the aforementioned toolkit, which are available for download from Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=e-...). All the information of the project is also available at http://en.blind-faith-games.e-ucm.es.

The project is now immersed in a preliminary usability evaluation phase. For that reason, we are kindly requesting all people interested to contribute by trying out the games and fulfilling a short evaluation questionnaire https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formk... where they can also leave their feedback. This evaluation form is also available from the applications main menu and there is an offline version (http://e-adventure.e-ucm.es/bfg/form.docx) that you can return by e-mail to jtorrente@fdi.ucm.es. Feedback from blind users or experts in usability/accessibility are specially welcome!

Hope the number of accessible games in Android increases very quickly after the push of Android 4.0. And thanks to all of you for helping us in improving the accessibility of our games!

I just made an audio game app for android. Open Field Echo Sounder. Put your headphones on and search for virtual targets outside using echolocation.
