Shattered Kingdoms is proud to welcome  players of all abilities to experience Pyrathia!

The accessibility (“access”) command toggles accessibility mode on and off for visually impaired users. This game play mode strips away ascii art and other characters that screen readers may incorrectly verbalize before they reach the user. This includes the ascii map displayed while in the wilderness. Instead of the map, the room title line informs the player that they are in a wilderness environment. The player can then look in the cardinal directions to see the names of rooms around them.

Commands currently modified by accessibility mode include: attributes, affects, score, release, look, and exits. Visually-impaired users may also find the nospam (as in “no spam”) command to be quite useful.

If you have suggestions to make this gaming mode more useful and our game more accessible, please contact:
