NFL Football Games for Voice Over Users

iOS and iPadOS Gaming

I am wondering if there is any NFL Games that Voice Over users can play. I am most interested in playing for a season and trying to get to the Superbowl. Hoping to play the computer opponents. I never played on Online, willing to try it once I can figured it out. I have played Madden Football in the 90's on a Nintendo before I went Blind. Since I went Blind, The only game I found to play was Kitchens Inc. Football. Looking for IOS Apps, and If none, also on Windows. Thanks Dave.

Madden 2020 or 2021 are accessible you have tts for menus. There is some memorization that needs to happen when it comes to the playbook but it is workable. I would reccomend buying madden 2020 over 2021 as there were a few set backs

We all need to contact EA and ask them to make Madden completely accessible.

I wonder if you could use the Xbox or Playstation remote play apps to play Madden on those systems over your WiFi network. I think the OP was referring to games on iOS, not game consoles. I don't think Madden Mobile is accessible... I thought someone here posted a while ago and said that screen recognition didn't work enough to make the game playable. I haven't tried it myself though. I've found screen recognition in games isn't helpful enough.

A couple years ago I tweeted the EA accessibility person and asked about the Mobile version of Madden being made accessible, and didn't get much of a response back. So maybe that's something they can't do right now.

Then again, EA has a horrible reputation in the mainstream gaming community because of things like lute boxes, so I don't think I'd play the game long if it were made accessible.

Hi, I do have the Xbox One S and I play Madden 20 and 21 fairly well on it. I heard that you will be able to read the playbook on the new Xbox coming out this year and it has more memory in the system for that. I used my OCR from NVDA, it seems to work better than Jaws. I am able to get the name of the plays, so what I did then was put them in an excel spread sheet. Then I got my wife to describe what the receivers and running backs routes, and how the line is setup. Then I put it in braille, and then I can go to it and now I know who I am throwing or handing off to and where they are located on the field. I hope one day they will be able to have it on IOS mobile in accessible form soon. thanks all, Sports Lover Dave.
