Hi Folks,
I found this item in today's Fred's Head.
I looked for a price and found none.
I think the game is still under development as some of the pages state an April release.
WII Game for the Blind
March 21 2011

At the end of 2008 the collaboration partners - MAD multimedia, Principal
Blue, TNO and Royal Dutch Visio - had decided to give the concept of
Serious Gaming a new dimension. Within two years and with a subsidy from
Innovative Action Programme in Groningen (Dutch: IAG2) the first official
Nintendo Wii game was developed for children with or without visual
impairment. The process used for this development is called co-creation, a
technique in which the end user is involved in the development of new
products and services. Visually impaired, blind and full sighted children
contributed to the content and form of this game, while physical
therapists, exercise specialists and teachers monitored the motoric aspects.

In "The Explorer and the Mystery of the Diamond Scarab", you play the role
of Ben the Archaeologist who is searching for the Temple of the Diamond
Scarab. Once he is in the temple he meets Tiri, an enchanting Egyptian
princess. Going through a maze of underground passages they look for
ancient Egyptian treasures and confront various challenges. The Guardian
leads them step by step to the exit. The game is played on a Balance Board,
a standard Wii accessory. With this you can move through the maze, find
treasures and enter challenging situations. This is the first game in
the world developed jointly for visually impaired, blind and fully sighted
children. The game can be played in Dutch and in English.
