Games for the blind?

My sister-in-law is blind, yet, like any other human beings, she loooooves playing games. She plays hockey on the x-box and she plays bowling on the Wii (she actually beats me everytime!). She also plays the New Super Mario Bros with us, thanks to the bubbles.

 

I was wondering, is there any blind-friendly nintendo games available out there? Anyone has any idea for interesting games where you could rely on sound to move around rather than sight?

 

Nintendo keeps saying they want to make games accessible for everyone... Will they make at least some of their games more accessible for all the blind gamers out there? I mean, blind people love Nintendo too, you know!

 

Any suggestion is more than welcomed!

Thx!

She could probably play Rhythm Heaven, I've played that with my eyes closed because it helps me. Hope this helps.

Re: Games for the blind?

Along with DSI'S Rhythm Heaven suggestion, you could also try Electroplankton and Wii Fit Plus. Other than that, I can't think of many videogames for blind people. Sorry

Try finding games that deal with chance or timing.

Re: Games for the blind?

Pretty much any game that only requires movement can work just as long as you help her. she would proboble like games like:

 

just dance

the rayman raving rabit series

some of the wii fit plus games

some of the fishing games ( look for the rumble feature)

celebrity sports showdown

she could probobly play baseball games based off sound (ex: the ball flyng through the air)

active personal trainer

 

Well thats all the games that I have in my house that would probably be good for her. Hope you can find more games.

Re: Games for the blind?

excersize and sports games should work as you dont need to see what they are doing most of the time as the Instructions are read out to you verbally in most excersize games and in some sports games.
