Here is a artical that I got off the webpage of www.litchie.com
That displays how we as blind gamers can work beside sighted developers
to make a different for all gamers.
So here is the artical below.
I didn’t realize that a blind person can enjoy iPhone as much as
sighted people. Then our world crossed when Michael Barnes came forward
and proposed an app idea to port some classic text games on iPhone. We
talked and I listened to him using his iPhone with Voice Over. I never
used this feature before, and suddenly I think it is the best feature
on the phone.
iOS SDK doesn’t provide direct Text-To-Speech APIs, it was a bit of
challenge using only the UIKit accessibility functions. I also tried to
use a free TTS engine, but was unable to make it sound better than the
built-in one. After some investigation, I figured out a way (or a hack,
worked well most of the time) to use Voice Over to speak out text
changes on the screen automatically, and I thought it is fairly usable
for text games.
The app is a game pack of six classic games developed by Richard L. De
Steno. A detailed list is put on the App Store description page. I
never played these games before, but Michael had fond memories of them.
