RPG Text II ROK and Blind
I haven't encountered any issues with equipping items. My screen reader displays the items in a list of radio buttons to check off, and then there is a drop-down menu in which I am able to select the part of the body that I want to equip, such as head, torso, etc. I have not traveled outside of the town just yet, and I am curious to see how the map and exploring will work. I think my screen reader changes the layout of the page into a simple layout because it displays everything in a single page, kind of like a word processing document, with added links to go to the character sheet, parts of town, and so forth.
Oh wow, a crossbow? I'm using a sword, but it's pretty funny because I considered using a bow. I just didn't think I could use one while also equipping a shield. The sword skill seems more expensive to train, so I may just switch to be more aligned with my avatar *smile*
One feature which is helpful for forums is to have headings, where each post is preceded by a heading like the [..] forum, though I don't know how difficult that would be to code. It helps because we use the letter H (Generally speaking when on a web page to jump to the next heading) and can quickly find posts and know who is writing what. I find myself a bit confused at times with the posts because everything seems to run together and I have been confused as to which user is writing when the topic becomes more active.
I am sorry I did not find this community sooner. I happened to see the Cozyville Role-playing Game and am disappointed I missed out on it. That one sounds like it would have been lots of fun.
I will definitely try to answer any questions you may have and will also let you know if I come across anything I have difficulty figuring out. I will also see if I can get a few of my friends to register and play or participate in discussions so that we can get a broader perspective since some of them use ZoomText and other Internet browsers.
