Description of App: 

Blindfold Word Games is a fully accessible word game for both sighted and visually impaired people, designed for rapid audio play.

Word Games includes the games Word Ladder, Word Flick, Hangman and Unscramble.

The objective of Blindfold Word Ladder is to convert one word into another word by changing only one letter a a time. For example, to change the word 'COLD' to 'WARM', you can first change the third letter of COLD from 'L' to 'R', making the word CORD. Then change the second letter of 'CORD', so the new word is 'CARD', then the fourth letter of 'CARD', so the new word is 'WARD'. Finally change the last letter of 'WARD', so the new word is 'WARM'.

In Word Flick, you have a 16 randomly chosen letters arranged in a 4 by 4 grid. You build as many words as possible using adjacent letters. The longer the word, the higher you score. For example, if the top line has the letters C, A, T, S, and the second line has the letters O, L, D, X, you could form CATS from the first line and COLD using the C from the first line, and the O, L, D from the second line.

In Unscramble, you must unscramble the word. The letters L, E, H, O, L unscramble to become the word HELLO.

In Hangman, you must discover the word before using up your moves.

Blindfold Word Ladder was suggested by several blind gamers who enjoyed Blindfold Color Crush and Blindfold Tile Puzzle.
