In

Sixit, you

try to save the world in just six actions at a time, while SenseMath makes maths audible.

These are the apps of the week.

Sixit

In puzzle game

Sixit

you have limited options that you must use

wisely

.

The idea is that you can only do six actions per turn.

Then you start all over again.

You play as the animal Pep in a village full of other animals.

These inhabitants fear a living storm that can only be stopped by a dragon.

The problem is, this dragon is sleeping and you have to wake it up.

You do this by talking to all the villagers and little by little to solve their problems.

For this you have various tools at your disposal that you slowly collect, such as an ax, wings and a device to be able to talk to the other animals.

You can take several tools with you at the same time, but you can only do six actions in total.

Each time you have to try to achieve something else in the village within those six actions.

The game is full of charm and humor.

For example, it is nice to try out the different tools with all villagers, because they all react differently.

And who knows, you might solve some puzzles this way.

SenseMath

This special app makes math audible to visually impaired people.

SenseMath converts a complicated mathematical function into sound.

A mathematical function is entered via a special keyboard, developed for the app.

This is then displayed in image, speech and Braille.

The app was created by Visio and is currently only available for iOS devices in the App Store.

That's because the app uses the VoiceOver feature offered on iOS devices.

VoiceOver is the iOS screen reader.

The makers propose to further expand the app in the summer.

Including all assignments from Noordhoff's methods, based on a mathematical graph.

Thinking in terms of limitations

With the Think in limitations app you learn what people with disabilities encounter when using apps and websites.

A useful checklist to go through when you or your company is creating a new website, app or other product.

In class you look at what people encounter for each disability.

For example, under 'visual impairment' you can read that it is important that text and images must be adjustable in size and that color contrast between text and background is important.

It also states what you should not do, such as posting videos with a lot of visual information without audio description.

For each disability, the various forms of the disability are discussed and with which those people specifically experience problems.

Facts and figures are also given.

Each information block is concluded with a quiz to see if you have paid attention.

There is also a box with general advice, such as about the language deficiency in people with a migrant background.

The app has been developed by digital accessibility.nl.
