I was wondering if any of you have suggestions for developing a new puzzle app that is screen reader compatible. This could be an entirely new concept or an accessible version of an existing puzzle. For my master's thesis, I am trying to create a new digital puzzle that is accessible to anyone with a visual impairment. I know that there are relatively many accessible word games (mainly anagram based), like Blindfold Word Games and Accessible Hangman. Do you enjoy these? Or do you prefer puzzle apps such as Blackbox?
About my thesis: I am researching the elements that make a digital puzzle (apps, browser based, console, anything) suitable for an audio solution. For example, does VoiceOver work well with grid puzzles such as Sudoku? I don't mean that every element in the grid is read correctly, but whether the order in which it was done makes sense and if this audio representation helps with creating a mental map of the grid. Similarly, using a screen reader, what types of puzzles are easier to use; do you prefer word puzzles over sliding puzzles such as Rush Hour or 2048, etc.? These digital puzzles should be comprehensible and easy to use, but not easy to solve; puzzles are meant to be challenging.
Many thanks for your input!
