I guess I should start by introducing myself. I’m WhiteCaneGamer, yeah I know, the name of the blog kinda gave that away.! As you might have also guessed, I’m really into gaming. What might not be so obvious is the fact I’m interested in PC gaming. I own a PS4 but my son uses that mainly, along with his Wii U.
My name also hints at a little something extra about me, in addition to my hobby, yep, you guessed it. I’m blind. Let me go into a little more detail. I’m legally blind but I do have some residual vision. This has given me the chance to play games, such as Minecraft and Stronghold Kingdoms, two games I really enjoy, however, these are two games that are, as far as I am aware, completely inaccessible to other blind gamer’s or at least those with less vision than me.
Now on to the details about me, those that you can’t figure out for yourself, just by looking at the name of my blog. At the time of writing this I am 29 years old. I have recently become married to my long term fiancee of 12 years. She, luckily, is also really interested in gaming. This gives me a lot of opportunities to indulge in my passion, that along with the fact I have a young son and an even younger little girl, enables me to add all kinds of gaming goodies to the White Cane household.
As my eye sight deteriorates I will be forced, not reluctantly however, to look into games that are accessible for all blind gamers. This has given my hobby a little focus. I’m at the start of this journey, so I thought it would be a good time to begin this blog and share what I’m learning, with all of you.
Please, keep coming back to be the first to find out what I’m getting up to. You’ll also see a lot of changes coming to the blog over the coming weeks as I add content and change the layout, artwork and add a few features. I look forward to this little adventure of mine, and I look forward to taking you all along for the ride to.
