About Marty Schultz
I’ve started launched a handful of software ventures in both the greater Boston & Miami areas. Recently, I’ve been collaborating with visually impaired people to design audio games and with elementary and middle school students to teach them how to express their ideas as apps.
Some of the companies I’ve started include Omtool (document routing and compliance), eSped (information systems for teachers, administrators, and parents of children with exceptionalities), IMbrella Software (messaging and compliance tracking), and McGruff SafeGuard (parental control software).
With Blindfold Games, I create game apps for visually impaired and sighted children, teens and adults. The first game we built was Blindfold Racer, an audio game where you drive with your ears instead of your eyes, built as a STEM project with 4th, 5th and 6th grade children. That game was so popular, and we received so much praise from the blindness community, that we continue to build dozens of other accessible games that now comprise the Blindfold Games series.
