Human echolocation and games for blind people

08.04.2005 - 02:18 / filled under default

I did not know (or let's better say: I was not aware or thinking about it) that blind people would like to play games too. So I was a bit surprise to hear Scott's latest Today's Podcast:

I decided on today's word after reading a thought provoking article at Wired.com. The article is titled The Blind Fragging the Blind and its about video games for blind gamers. I was surprised by the nature of the games.

The games are very sophisticated including a purely audio version of the first person shooter Quake and of all things, a driving game. BSCGames.com offers many games designed for the blind and visually impaired. They also offer several sound trailers if you want to learn what an all audio gaming experience sounds like.
Interesting, as always. :)
