I have just uploaded the Spoken 21 app for approval. As with Spoken Slots it does not rely upon VoiceOver, but provides verbal instructions, card names, card values, bet, deal, hit and stand, along with game sounds. Double down, surrender, and insurance can be selected. The game stats can be requested with a two-finger double tap. Speech may be silenced with a single two-finger tap. Double down is only available after the first two cards with a double one-finger tap. Betting is done with the upper right button. A $1, $5, $25, and $100 bet can be placed. You start with a zero balance and can track your progress using the stats option for number of hands, wins, loses, draws, and blackjacks along with the percentage. A visual of the cards is provided for those who like although they are quite small on the iPhone but much larger on the iPad. The lower left button hits and a flick down will also hit. The lower right button stands and a swipe right or left also stands.
The game uses a single deck and shuffles after each hand. Your highscore is kept between games and can be reset to zero using a triple two-finger tap with confirmation required. The background casino sound can be turned on or off with a two-finger double tap.
I know I may have forgotten some of the details but I so appreciate this community. It was your input that supplied most of the changes to Spoken Slots. Again I would appreciate your feedback for this game. I believe it follows most of the conventional Las Vegas rules. This app does not include Voice Recognition. Is that important? The game is a paid app for .99 cents. Thanks for your support. It is more valuable than any other I receive.
I will be attending the NFB conference in Orlando, FL starting July 1. If any of you are also attending please let me know. I have updated the spokengames.com website with this new app but the button for the app store does not work yet. The app should be available next week sometime. I will report when I know it is there.
Thanks again for your support. BTW this app should work with IOS 7.0 or newer.
