Fair enough tom.

I admit, i'm not overly familiar with mobile devices because as I said, I use my laptop for most mobile needs.


While I have a mobile phone, it has no speech software at all, so I'm not overly familiar with that area of technology.

Hi Dark,

There is really no way to put Jim Kitchen's Trivia game on a hand-held device unless it runs Windows. It has a lot more problems than just requiring Sapi. All of Jim's games are writthen in Visual Basic 6 which is absolutely Windows specific. Since it was designed by Microsoft it should come as no surprise they have not licensed or made ports of the Visual Basic 6 runtime to Mac, Linux, Cimbion OS, etc. As a result it has no use outside of Windows software development.

As far as your point about trivia games goes it wouldn't be difficult to create one for a smart phone, PDA, or similar device. Provided you have a screen reader on there like Talks writing the trivia game would be a cakewalk.

Not because I don't think trivia could be fun, but there are many accessible trivia games available already which you could run on a hand held.

I'm not sure about Jim kitchins because of the sapi issue, but I believe those from 7-128 do, and using websites like freerice would be no trouble at all.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.
