Blindfold Racer: VA Med Center, Miami

Pat, a parent of three children who attend Cushman School, was able to get volunteer visually disabled veterans at the Miami Veterans Administration Med Center to test the app.

The coordinator and I walked through a labyrinth of hallways in the building to arrive at a conference room where three veterans were waiting for us. Both had the look of cynicism on their face, and told me that they’ve never played on app game.

This photo shows the coordinator (on the left), with the two veterans:

The next two photos were taken after they were playing for about 45 minutes. You can see the smiles breaking through on their faces:

These veterans had some great suggestions, which we then spent the next few weeks doing. They were very critical of some of the voice intonations, so we fixed those voice recordings.
