iOS and iPadOS Gaming
Hi all, We're launching an iOS crossword-type game in the next couple of weeks. We've made sure it was designed for accessibility from the beginning, but we'd like to get feedback from users and are looking for on-line communities and sites that can help get the word out and get their input. I found this AppleVis site and loved the helpfulness of all the forum replies. I was especially delighted by David Woodbridge and his report on the in-flight app for Quantas. We're just starting an app like this for a major airline, so this was invaluable input. If you have any ideas around who I can reach out to regarding the game, please reply! And I'll be sure to come back to the forum when we launch and let you guys know about it. Paul

Crossly is Here!
Hi all - we just released the game last Thursday. Please check it out and provide feedback on the accessibility so we can make it better. We designed it with these features:
- Every game in the list will voice who’s turn it is, the opponent’s name, percentage of game completed, and the current score
- Every letter on the board when tapped will voice what its contents currently is. Additionally, it will voice the type of letter (pen or pencil) and its location in its word for the current direction of the game (horizontal or vertical).
- Tapping the clue bar will read the currently selected clue, its direction, and the clue contents.
- Tapping the header will voice the status of the game (same as in the clue list).
- When popups are displayed, their contents will be voiced as well (there’s probably some room for improvement here, but it’s not worth any more dev until we get feedback).
