Description of App: 

Ears Crossword is a fully accessible crossword game, for both sighted and visually impaired people, designed for rapid audio play. It is based on the standard crossword puzzle that is a grid 15 rows by 15 columns.

In Ears Crossword, you are given a set of hints and its location in the grid, and you have to come up with the answer - a word or words - that fits into the gird, either horizontally or vertically. When entering a word, it might share letters with other words, so you must pick answer carefully.

To make the puzzles easier, you can set the difficulty level of the puzzles, and ask for hints. You can also have the puzzle partially completed, which helps you learn how to solve a crossword puzzle.

Ears Crossword Puzzle comes with a practice puzzle, and there are upgrade packs of 100 puzzles each.
