The Computer and Recreation.
Edwards, Paul
The paper examines the applications of microcomputers to recreation programing for blind persons. The accessibility of microcomputers to this population is discussed, and the advantages as well as disadvantages of speech synthesis equipment are noted. Information is presented on the modification of hardware for Radio Shack and Apple computers. Sources for software, including local computer libraries, mail order houses, and public libraries are listed. Suggestions for using computer games in recreation for the blind include beginning with games that involve easily recognized speech. Benefits for the instructor are seen to include ease of planning and recordkeeping. The paper concludes with a list of games, their status (public or commerical), a brief description, and a list of 11 vendors and their addresses. (CL)
