Pfew! this sounded complex and difficult to me, a totally not-coder. But if this interaction was learning experience for all of you, I'll be happy I shared this idea to you all. Hoping that both of you are having fun working together. Best, WW

I posted the suggestions in the original post at the beginning of this topic: make the answers randomly placed and not in a fixed order, so that the correct one is not always at the same place in the series (see the example I gave above) and add some more difficult words like sincerely, necessary and exercise (it's possible I already misspelled them). Best, WW

Well, if the coder of the original module is still active over here, please consider this as a request to update this module. If the original coder isn't active over here anymore, I suggest this as a new project? Best, WW

Hi, I often encounter the spelling bee during gaming. But I found out that the questions become easy to answer if you can remember the order of the answers. I will copy an example:
"Choose

1)insuficient

2)insuficiant

3)insufficient

4)insufficiant


The Spelling Bee
Question One


Choose the correct spelling of the following word:

What is it called when you don't have enough of something?

1)insuficient
2)insuficiant
3)insufficient
4)insufficiant"
In this example, the correct answer is always 3.
I think it would be more challenging if the answers are randomly placed themselves; so you have to pay attention on how the answers are written down and not remember at which place the correct answer is.

I also would suggest to include more words. I personally always have difficulty with sincerely or exercise. It's possible I spelled them incorrectly. In French Exercise also exists and as soon as you see the words both in English and French, the confusion is starting. I suppose there are more difficult words in English.
In the current spelling bee game I easily can win the contest, and yes, it's frustrating to lose. But I like the idea of learning things while gaming.
Just a suggestion to make this sub-game more challenging.

Perhaps this is not possible to programm easily?

Best, WW

I indeed was talking aobout Esoterra or Xanterra (on your site) and I was not sure of it, but indeed you have a  desert in Xanterra on your site. The usual forest on the Harry-Potter-themed website I often visut, is already called "the forbidden forest" but there is a town in the hp-books in which a graveyard is mentioned: Little Hangleton was the hometown of Voldemort's father and grandparents, and Voldemort was reborn on the graveyard where his father was burried. There are cruel creatures in several books: a snake that's hidden in a death woman's corpse (hp-7), inferi (death people who are doing a dark wizard's bidding =hp-6), the elves that are described in the disk world series of Terry Pratchett, the icy creatures that are haunting the northern countries in the "song of ice and fire", ... Perhaps this desert or tundra should get more attention and perhaps needs some extra hallowe''n forest events specifically designed for this forest itself? If there's some interest, I surely can write some scenario's? You can mail me by using my gmail-account with more concrete info or questions what you need and I'll try to help. Best, WW

Hi I wonder why there's no forest and healing hut section in the hallowe'n village. Or is this depending on which game you're playing? I'm not sure if the hallowe'n village doesn't allow this sections, but I suppose that there are creepy creatures that can haunt such hallowe'en forests. Best, WW

I'm afraid I have no real affiinity with the legend of the green dragon, but I surely can try to help. If previous ideas I posted could be of any help or give you an indication if I can help, you surely can mail me. I'm not on the forum daily, I prefer mailing. The previously posted ideas were based on what I saw on other games or read in books. I read some of the parts of Pratchett's Disk world series, I read the lord of the rings of Tolkien, parts of the Narnia cyclus, the parts of "the song of ice and fire" that are translated in Dutch, I read the twilight cyclus. ... If you want me to write a kind of scenario for a module or forest event, ... you can mail me with concrete things about what you want. If the above is rubbish to you, no problem. Best, WW

I found the battle arena thing that's similar to the battle arena at hl: it's currently in Zebulon on your current game; it's not pvp related. I think the potions we were talking about can't be used within this arena. But I tested out the potions module, and that's accessible for screenreader users. So, being short: an exchange system for potion ingredients would be great. Best, WW

for the follow-up, after some frustrating mails (sorry TgTarheel) we (we means TgTarheel, a screenreader specialist and me) could find out that the thing to find the 4th piece of the royal decree should be accessible for screenreader users. It's just a matter of looking at the correct place. The only thing I'm still puzzling is, what's on the page "hints" after clicking on "about ocean quest" I only can see the text "this is a good example of a hint" or something like that. But I don't see an example or something else besides that thext on the "hints"-page. But the decree should be findable completely when you use a screenreader. Hope this helps. Best, WW

I answered the private message: the most important thing to know is, if the part of the site is reachable by using the arrow-keys and if the text I have to find is not an image of a text but a text, text-based content, then it should be readable and reachable by a screenreader.

On the old Pottermore website there was a game included in which we could visit the books and chapters, several important scenes were accessible and within these moments or scenes you could collect several items. I don't know how seeing people saw the items, but I e.g. saw "collect" or "salt and pepper pot" and when I saw such words on strange places, I tried to use enter or space key (of keyboard) to activate the collectible objects. Sometimes it was necessary to open a drawer or let explode a cracker or open a cupboard. If this was the case, I could not find the objects (as seeing people did this by using the mouse). But when I switched off javascript I could find these collectibles. I could find almost all collectibles by doing so. The other animated stuff was inaccessible for me. But I found out many seeing players had difficulties in finding these collectibles. I unfortunately don't know how the developers of that game on Pottermore made these collectibles and can't explain how to do such stuff, as I can explain you how I use a screenrader, but I can't explain how a seeing person saw the website.

I wish I had the knowledge for answering all these questions. I only know that flash-based content or images etc. aren't accessible. Perhaps the developers of nvda www.nvaccess.org or the people who wrote this article could help? http://www.thisisinsider.com/how-blind-people-use-smartphones-2017-2
I understand you don't want to take away the fun for the seeing people. I only want to get the chance to participate in the fun, too. Best, WW

Thanks for the help. Now I have to find the notary. But as this is part of the game, I won't ask for help. But knowledge of the real life doesn't seem to help over here. No notary at the jail, not in the inn, not in dwellings or marriage section, ... Best and thanks for the help, but it wasn't my intention to do it this way, because as I said, it isn't meant to do it with the help of an admin. The module itself should permit the user to find it at its own. Best, WW

Yesterday evening (it is now 8:30 in the morning over here, I tried to check if I have indeed that 4th piece of the decree. But I'm not sure about what I saw: I could not board the Korinth anymore, it seems all the fish I hauled in was gone, I had to buy all the fishing equipment again, I could pay the iou's again. The only thing I can think of is the following:

If you managed it to give me the missing piece of the decree, I hope it doesn't matter in which order you collect the pieces. If this is the case and that one piece of the decree must be collected as the first one, it's possible I must start from zero again. But I even can't check as Trandor keeps on pretending he has an empty glass, although I paid for all rounds of drinks. So I can't see what happened, what is the current situation.

Besides all I wrote above it's not meant to be happening that the admin of the game has to deliver that piece. If that piece of the decree can be found like the others and is not presented as an image only (or by using another inaccessible method that makes it invisible for screenreader users), all players are the same for the game. If I have to do it all over and am started from zero, this is a bit frustrating and disappointing. I wish I could see what's the current situation. When I look in my backpack I can't find this out, only Trandor can tell, but the last time I checked, he keeps on pretending his glass was empty.

Best, WW

Dear, I am not an admin, just a player who's playing the ocean quest on a website. I read the comments that some of you can't find the 4th piece of the decree. I asked the admin of de website on which I play and she told me where to look for it.
when I click on the link "ocean quest" I see a link "hints". When I activate this "hints"-link I see the text "this could be a good example of a hint" or something like that. But besides this text I don't see anything. Is the hint that's given an image of something or an image of a text? If yes, this is invisible to screenreader users, I'm afraid. Such hints are thus useless for screenreader users. The admin of the game confirmed that it's an image of that 4th piece of the decree. I can't find the word COASTER so I can't click nor activate it. I suppose that, when the image had an alt tag, I could find the word "coaster" and try to activate it. Screenreader users don't use the mouse, they use routing keys on a brailledisplay (if they are blind) or space bar or enter key of the keyboard. Partially sighted users sometimes use the mouse, but I only can tell you how I try to play or surf the web (as I'm blind and not partially sighted). If you want to test things out, nvda is an open-source screenreader you can use for free: www.nvaccess.org Leave the mouse alone for a session, use tab-key to navigate the web, enter or space bar to activate links etc. By doing so, you can test out if something is clickable or not, visible for screenreader users or not (if voice of screenreader doesn't tell what's on a certain place, you probably used content that it can't interprete). Thanks for looking at this and if you can fix this issue or tell me how I can fetch that 4th piece of that decree, I would be very thankfull. Best, WW
