All Abilities ePlayground
All Abilities ePlayground is an accessible website that is part of the accessible playground movement in Queensland, Australia. All Abilities ePlayground includes options to play using a mouse and keyboard, a single switch, Puff2Play (blowing into the mic), blind mode (This includes a blind and single switch version.) and interactive whiteboard.
All Abilities ePlayground has four games with multiple levels. Ibis Buster involves "shooing" away birds and other animals from a beach your avatar is walking on. Memory is a matching game (level one is animals, two is musical instruments and three is weather conditions). In TrixMix you activate animals which each make a different sound in order to play or recreate music. In Roo Hill Thrill you control your avatar as it surfs and tries to avoid balls.
In the single switch version you can use the settings (accessed by pressing "s") to toggle scanning on and off, control scanning speed, frame color (the box that shows hot spots), and switch activation type as well as background sound effects.
You will need to complete a free registration to use the site.
