I'm the one of the people who are responsible for the Klango Player, a
new "accessible multimedia and community center". We would like to
invite all developers to submit their software to a new Software Catalog
we will be launching in a few days.
Some time ago we tried to create a few audio games and other small
programs for the "listening people", but after a year we already knew
that reachability of the VI audience is the main problem of such activity.
Because we didn't want to give up, we stopped making games and started
designing a new software platform which could be used as an efficient
medium for delivering (acessible) software and other interactive
multimedia content to broader, worldwide VI audience. It took us almost
two years to finish the first stage of the adventure.
We are happy to announce that the final version of the Klango Player 2.0
will be released on 6th October.
With a single download, and thanks to Player's simple user interface,
even non-experienced blind users (not only geeks like you;) get easy
access to the Player's functions and some additional Klango Programs
(through a built-in install/update mechanism). Now, we are finishing the
puzzle by adding the Software Catalog dedicated to all developers
interested in publishing their software to the community.
If it comes to the community, it grows everyday with new users from all
over the world ...without any advertisement from our side. Even now,
when the Player is online just for two months (as a beta), we have over
1000 users and each day hundreds of people log into Klango and have a
good time with it (take a look at the forums). New language versions are
being developped by users themselves ...and so on.
So... getting back to the point of this email: if you're a developer and
the Klango Community matches somehow your target audience, simply submit
your software to the Catalog. :) It's a simple operation and you can be
sure you'll gain a lot of new users for your applications. If you submit
your app, it will be listed in the Player's menu and users will be able
to download, install and run it directly from the Player with just a few
Of course, submitting aplications to the Software Catalogue is
More detailed information about the Software Catalog and details of the
submition process can be found in our Partner Panel,
You have to own a Klango Account to enter the Panel, but we hope it's
not a big problem for you :) Simply download the Player and create one.
We suggest you to get the For Testers version, because it's almost
up-to-date if it comes to various features. It's URL is

Please note that the possibility of downloading your applications is not
available in the current versions of the Player. If we recieve your
submission(s) to the catalog (through the panel), we'll release a
"final-beta" version next week to test how the machinery works in real
conditions before we enter full 2.0.
In a case of any questions, don't hesitate to contact us. Please use our
