KS accessible for blind players?

I have a friend who'd like to check out KS, after listening to me rave about it. One problem: he's blind, and the game appears to be completely invisible (pardon the pun) to his screen reader.

The irony at work here isn't lost on either of us.

I know there are Let's-Plays out there, but he's actually interested in the experience of playing the game, at least to the extent that he can. So, can anyone here suggest a way to make KS playable for a blind user?

Thanks in advance.

Other than reading it outloud, I can't think of one.

I would highly recommend Millbee's play through. I'm not sure how it would directly appear to be to your friend, but I found it to definitely be one of the better play troughs. He makes the experience enjoyable and hilarious at times.

Other than that I have no clue, maybe reading it to him would be best. ... qFI9md_vbz

As I understand it KS is built on the RenyPy engine which does have support for vision impaired users using built in speech synthesis: That said this does not appear to be in use for KS. Not sure this if this was a conscious decision or perhaps this came out after KS released. What type of screen reader are you using?
