Audible Darts for Blind or Visually Impaired Individuals

I attended the American Council of the Blind (ACB) National Conference in Phoenix from July 11-14th on behalf of The Lighthouse for the Blind, Inc. for the purpose of keeping current with assistive technology for people who are blind or sight-impaired. I talked with many vendors about a variety of amazing products including a bar code reader app for the iPhone, talking way-finding software for the PC, and a new really small, really light electronic notetaker.

However, this blog entry is about recreation! Did you know that there is an accessible way for people who are blind or visually impaired to play darts? Yes, audible darts! I would like to highlight this fully accessible talking dartboard, because along with notetakers and way-finding technologies, games and recreation can be crucial for participation in a balanced life. So, here’s the scoop – it’s a standard dartboard that talks. Everything you’d want to know is spoken – games, rules, points scored, and there’s a talking help system. Go to audiodartmaster.com for details or to hear interviews about the product, or call 763.383.0077.

Happy playing!
