Well, I'm incredibly sorry to report that the webpages which use the Ap are about as inaccessible as you could imagine!

There is literally no text there Hal can read beyond the status bar at all, ---- in fact I even tried saving the page as text and got nothing.


I'm certain that Silverlight is installed and running correctly sinse it's there in the addon's section as an enabled Ie addon, however for all that Hal can make of it the page which starts the ap might as well be blank, ---- though looking closely I believe I can see some writing there so I know it is not.

I'm not sure what changes if any could be made to make the thing accessible, sinse i'm not even sure what silverlight practically does to make pages textless, but sinse as I said the 7th sense Java Lw program is equally inaccessible and quite probably impossible to make so, I'll contact Dolphin on Monday and ask about silverlight and Hal.

There may be experimental maps for it which I don't know about, ---- or something might be in the works on a Hal upgrade. Sinse I don't know how silverlight works I can't really say.

It's a shame though that both of the methods of playing lw conveniently are so absolutely inaccessible, ---- particularly as both have extra options such as a hard core mode and a scoring system which sound rather fun.

Beware the Grue!

Dark.

If this turns out to be accessible, I'll be a happy man indeed.

Hi.

poking around the project.aon forums, I discovered someone has created an online application to automate playing of lone wolf gamebooks. This means no more stat and item keeping, looking up numbers on tables, rolling dice or long drawn out combats.

In fact it would make the Lonewolf series function essentially like the fighting fantasy project stuff.

For a long while there has been a java application called 7th sense which does this, however sinse I can't read anything with Hal above the title, it's a bit of a none starter, ---- especially as while some Java applications can be incredibly screen reader friendly, when they're not, they're not! and nothing short of a complete rewrite will fix them.

So, I was intreagued to here about this online version. The only trouble is it apparently uses the Ms silverlight web addon.

I've heard a couple of bad things about silverlight, ---- but is this dependent upon the webpage and design, or implicitely part of silverlight itself.

Being as the Lw books are already html text, I'd theoretically assume all Silverlight would need to do is handle all the backgrounds stats etc, ---- but is this wrong?

have other silverlight driven projects proved utterly impossible?

Any information would be appreciated.

Beware the Grue!
