Description of App

Blindfold Sudoku Mini is a fully accessible Sudoku game for both sighted and visually impaired people, designed for rapid audio play. It's a starter game
for Sudoku - a 4-by-4 puzzle game that's great for kids and adults just getting started with Sudoku.

Blindfold Sudoku Mini comes with 5 Sudoku 4-by-4 easy puzzles - and is controlled through gestures. It doesn't require voice-over but is fully compatible
with voice-over. More puzzles are available through an in-app purchase.

The Sudoku puzzle board is not visible; instead, you play by listening. Tap on a cell to hear what's in the cell, swipe right to hear the row, swipe down
to hear the column and swipe up to hear the square. Blindfold Sudoku gives you audio cues to tell the difference between the initial puzzle cells and the
cells you fill in, and it lets you set multiple candidates for a cell.

You can set the game to use numbers, or animals (dog, cat, horse, or frog) or animal sounds.

You can customize the game to your liking: how much extra information is spoken and how quickly it is spoken.

The Blindfold Sudoku series was suggested at a meeting in the Boston area with several blind gamers who enjoyed Blindfold Racer and wanted to see more
games in the same style - audio games that were equally accessible for visually impaired and sighted people, ensuring sighted people don't have any advantages
by seeing the screen. In all Blindfold Sudoku games, the screen is dark.

This one is also great for those starting out, but the puzzles are just good enough to do in taxie cabs and other things. Ideal for 5 minutes now and again compared to the larger version
