Think you can drive a car better than a blind person?

Take your courage for a spin… try to drive with your ears instead of your eyes!

Listen carefully so you don't crash into fences and watch out for animals crossing the street.
Finish each level quickly to get points... cross all the finish lines and prove you're the Champ!

PS: Watch out for trolls, bears and bridges!

==============

Blindfold Racer was created for blind and visually impaired folks with help from the students in the app club at Cushman School, Miami FL. Thanks to the
students at Lighthouse for the Blind Miami and Broward and the veterans at the VA Med Center for their suggestions. And thanks to the dozens of children
and adults that told us that Blindfold Racer a great game for everyone.

This game does not require iPhone or iPad accessibly turned on, and everything in the game is spoken to you.
