Hi everyone,
I have a website where I'm creating games for blind and visually impaired people. It's address is http://www.TDLGames.com

Yet, that is not what I want to talk about.
Realizing that somethings will be easier if libraries exist for it, I have been creating libraries that may provide a basis for your games.
Currently, the libraries include:
1) TDLSoftLib Basic: Gives you basic fundamentals like speaking numbers and playing sounds.
2) TDLSoftLib Pro gives you the above-mentioned features + a general-purpose Object class, a coordinate system and the ability to create none-player characters (or NPCs).,
Also, I have recently started working on a library that'll make it somewhat easier to create multi-player games. Well, some other libraries may exist for this purpose, yet, I have found none.
"Hey now, in that library above, where's all the graphics coding???"
Regarding graphics, I'm sorry. Since I myself is blind, I naturally do not focus on graphics. (Yet, I would be grateful if someone said 'Graphics programming? That's me! And I'd be glad to help you.')
Enough of this.
Check out
http://www.TDLSoftware.com
for the TDLSoftLib Pro library.
It is here you'll also find the TDLSoftLib NE (network edition) once it is released.
Take care, and I hope to see some of you going to one of the websites listed above to see what this guy has been doing.
Peter.

Sorry I haven't replied before; been terribly busy.
"How I browse the net"?
Just about the way anyone else does it. I have the standard Internet Explorer web browser and in addition to that, I have a screen reader called Jaws for Windows.
This is a software program that is configured to read everything there is on the screen, including links, buttons and such.

"How do you program"?
I use the freely available Bloodshed Dev-C++ development environment. I taught myself most of what I know about C++ and C using online resources such as
http://www.blindprogramming.com
and
http://mindview.net

I hope this answered some of your questions.
Take care,
Peter.
P.S.: Please guide me in the right direction by voting in the pole at

Thanks
