Vision Impaired Version of Texas Hold'em Released
All inPlay, an accessible online community focused on fun and friendship for all, visually impaired and sighted alike, today announced the release of the world's first accessible version of Texas Hold'em. "From day one All inPlay has been about letting the skill of the player determine the outcome of the game, not whether or not they could see the screen," said Cofounder and CEO Jeremie Spitzer. "With our non-gambling version of Texas Hold'em, anyone who loves to play and make new friends now can, even those who use specialized assistive technologies like a screen reader." By focusing on the social aspect of games, it's no surprise that All inPlay's largest demographic is women over the age of 40. All inPlay is the first company dedicated to uniting the sighted and blind populations through online games. "Every time we set out building a new game we always made sure the graphics were top notch," said Cofounder and Community Director Paul Silva, "otherwise the games wouldn't have been able to attract as many sighted players it has." With 15 percent of its members sighted and 25 percent from outside the US, All inPlay is well on its way toward bringing fun and friendship to all.
