Frequently-Asked Questions

Does Dungeon support blind players?

Yes!

Blind players — as well as sighted players who simply want to — can access Dungeon via your favorite MUD client with screen-reader support. Many of our blind players connect to Dungeon with VipMud. But any standard MUD client should be fine. In addition to VipMud we test with TinTin++, Mudlet, and MUDRammer. Direct your secure client to: dungeon.smartmonsters.com port 9295. Insecure connections are available on port 9294. Some information re settings for specific clients is here. Unlike TriadCity, Dungeon has no popup signs or other GUI-centric World features requiring conversion for access via conventional MUD clients.

Our Web site is fully ARIA-aware. We lack the resources to test with screen readers as thoroughly as we'd like, but, we do try, and we respond quickly when glitches are pointed out.

The Dungeon World is not under development. It was originally written in the 1977 with no notion of accessibility in mind. We offer it as it is — but if you point out features or experiences which translate poorly to screen readers we'll do our best to make appropriate adaptations. Please let us know how it goes for you!
