Iphone games for the blind

Hi, I have an Iphone SE which I use with Voiceover, however I have been struggling to find games which are accessable with Voiceover for someone like myself who is totally blind. Does anyone have any advice or suggestions at all? Ththanks, Claire

Hi Claire,
depending on what kind of games you like:
Diceworld is very popular fully voiceover accessible has about 6 different games all with clear instructions.
Trivia crack or Kingdoms (by the same people) is a good Trivia style game.
Blackbox is quite popular at the moment, it's a kind of puzzle game.
Hanging with friends is a hangman style one.
there's also various accessible Sudoku and crossword apps but I'd have to go check the names of them.
Hope that gets you started :)

hi Kim, thank you so much for that, I do love crosswords, so if you do know of any accessible crossword apps would you be able to let me know? Take care Claire

If hanging with friends is accessible then I can almost guarantee Words with Friends is. It's by the same people and a bit like Scrabble. It was originally called Scrabulous and was a bit more like Scrabble than it is now until Mattel/Hasbro stepped in and they changed the name and some of the rules. It's the same size board but has the bonus tiles in different places and a different distribution of the letter tiles (also different scores for some of the letters) making it different enough for Mattel/Hasbro to have backed down but similar enough to still be fun.

Also both Words with friends and hanging with friends are cross-platform (Android, iPhone, Windows phone and on Facebook) so you won't be short of friends to play against.

Hi there. Lela here. You could play some games from the Blindfold series. You could also play Dice World, which is very accessible with voice-over. I play these games and they are amazing. You can play against me if you like. Hope that helps.

Iwould love to play against you! I'm not a big fan of Dice world     but which blindfold games do you play?
