The e-UCM research group from Complutense University of Madrid has published early results from the Blind Faith Games (BFG) project developed by Gloria Pozuelo and Javier Álvarez under the supervision of Baltasar Fernández-Manjón and Javier Torrente. The goal of the project is to develop a toolset that facilitates the development of accessible games for blind people for Android smartphones and tablets. This aims to improve the accessibility of mobile and educational games in the near future, avoiding a potential digital divide when these technologies are introduced in the classroom. So far three games have already been developed using this toolkit, which are available for download from Google Play (https://play.google.com/store/apps/developer?id=e-UCM). All the information of the project is also available at http://en.blind-faith-games.e-ucm.es.
The project is now immersed in a preliminary usability evaluation phase. For that reason, we are kindly requesting all people interested to contribute by trying out the games and fulfilling a short evaluation questionnaire
where they can also leave their feedback. This evaluation form is also available from the applications main menu and there is an offline version (http://e-adventure.e-ucm.es/bfg/form.docx) that you can return by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. Feedback from blind users or experts in usability/accessibility are specially welcome.
