Abstract [en]

The Swedish Library of Talking Books and Braille (TPB) published web-based computer games for children with different kinds of visual impairments. As the target groups have very different needs, when it comes to the use of graphics and sound, TPB have developed two kinds of games. Image-based games aim to encourage children with partial sight to practice recognizing visual objects, whereas sound-based games also intend to be accessible without relying on vision. Based on the results of two pilot studies, this paper discusses central design issues of the graphical and sound-based interfaces for this type of application.
