This website is designed to give something back to the visuallly impaired community out there. All the software on this site is accessible both by sight and by sound.
We all want the mainstream software out there to be accessible and so it should be, but sadly some commercial software is far from accessible, sometimes expensive, and sometimes both. I am hoping my software and games make a contribution to showing its possible to produce simple, quality and useful programs that are accessible, easy to use and free.
It's a work in progress. There are now 6 free accessible games and 7 free accessible utilities, with several more in development.
Newly released, Dragon Village, is by far my biggest and best game to date. I have no doubt, with its game content and audio quality, this will become my most popular download. However, I am hoping my typing tutor proves to be the most valuable resource for folks with a sight impairment.
This website can be viewed in a number of styles: Currently in high contrast, it can be changed back to normal view, or large font. For example, in Internet Explorer go to the view menu, and choose styles.

After a lot of work, Dragon Village is here.
My audio typing tutor, being free and accessible, is possibly the first of its kind. Given how important keyboard skills are for people with sight loss, please post up a link for me on any forum you feel is appropriate.
I would most welcome any suggestions of other accessible utilities that you would find useful, or accessible games you would enjoy.
Spacey Vaders has now passed 2000 downloads and I am now celebrating over 15,000 total downloads.
There has been a suggestion of a puzzles page and a request for a begin python page. Not sure yet, will let you know.

After spending a lot of time building Dragon Village, I am going to take stock and ponder my next project. If only I had twice the time and programs took half as long as expected, rather than the other way round. Smiles.

These programs are all free to individuals, but they are not free to produce. They also take a considerable amount of time.

Every contribution helps to motivate me to produce more free and accessible programs.
Whether you are sighted or blind, if your circumstances do not allow you to make a contribution, simply let other folks know about the resources here. The best contribution going, would be to help a friend or relative enter the world of computers by showing them my freeaudio typing tutor.
