Minesweeper Accessible, first game created by a blind developer

Buscaminas Accesible

But the most interesting and valuable thing is that it has been made by Jonathan Chacón , a blind developer who saw his title published in the App Store on December 1st.

I suppose you’ve all played Minesweeper at some point, the game mechanics are simple and this makes it easy to adapt to make it accessible to all types of users regardless of their disability. But be careful, the fact that the game mechanics are simple doesn’t diminish the value or merit of the work done by Jonathan.

When we see any new application or game those of us who are lucky enough not to have any disability forget about those who have it in a selfish or carefree attitude. However we should be more demanding and ask that improving accessibility be an obligation for as many applications as possible.

We also appreciate the effort Apple is making to make its devices easier to use for all kinds of users with features such as VoiceOver, a feature that was first introduced in iOS with the launch of the iPhone 3GS.

Congratulations to Jonathan for his great work which will be appreciated by many users who will enjoy a classic video game, addictive and very entertaining. And if you want to know some more details, I invite you to read the interview that Faq-Mac does with Jonathan Chacón.
