                Hi alex.

Hope that’s okay for your name, if not, sorry.

Okay, will check out the links.



Just waiting on a sighted friend to do images, record audio clips, the best way to go, then do not have to neogitiate multi screen reader and speech apis.

A real nightmare, for that approach.

Hi, Marvin. As Steve said, there's a technology for that, canvas shadow DOM. Also refer to Mozilla implementation [1]. There's ongoing work for JS-based approach [2], but it's not even speced out yet.

A totally blind it student studying computer  at http://www.upskilled.edu.au

And now need to create a accessible html 5 game.

Looking at doing the classic 2 d shooter space invaders.

Using a engine called Quintus, http://www.html5quintus.com


How to make screen readers able to read content in the canvas.

Or any other tips, tricks, techniques for getting me started.

A sighted friend is doing images, recording audio clips, and background music, and using the free gpl licence for copyright.

So using jaws for windows and nvda on a Toshiba satellite pro c-50-a running windows 8.1 64 bit enteprrise.

Have gone through the learning amterials, and then the tutorial how to use the engine.

So, is there a more accessible game engine.
