Video of Teen’s Night

A few years ago, I was in Boston at one of the schools that is committed to providing education and services that build productive, meaningful lives for children and adults. We wanted to hear what visually impaired teens thought about Blindfold Racer.

I’ve attached a short video of some teens playing the game. They were totally engrossed in the game for over an hour.

You can watch it here.  If you are visually impaired, there’s not much dialog until about 30 seconds into the 60 second video.

Nancy Muldrew was one of the volunteers at the event, and she is a member of the Association of Massachusetts Educators of Students with Visual Impairments (AMESVI). She was so impressed with Blindfold Racer thatshe sent an email to all of the other members. Her comment was “Here is a tidbit for those interested in a fun audio game app – Those who have tried it tend to get hooked.”

If you’ve never played Blindfold Racer – whether you are visually impaired or not – it’s worth experiencing.  It’s may be the first time you drive with your ears instead of your eyes.
