the audio network is a site which offers various services from commentary on goalball and other sports, to readings of magazines and poetry. for the purposes of this site it also offers a games room, which features various sorts of trivia games all using recorded audio.
The games room features a number of games. These include the dayly puzles, a quiz updated every week day where you can E-mail in your answers for competition. There are then several perminant trivia games to play with many different questions including Bootcamp, an extremely tough set of questions presented by the aggressive Sergeant Kandar where you need five right in a row to win, risk it, a game where you gamble points on upcoming questions and win or lose the amount you risk, what to do in a crysis, a game which tests your survival skills in various hazardous situations, and who wants to win a million points similar to the game show who wants to be a millionare.
Finally there are two musical quizzes, tv theme tunes and name that year, and the random two player game (though a single player can simply play twice), snakes and ladders which combines the chance option of the original board game with a variety of trivia and other numeric questions.
All games, ----- and indeed other services on the site, use a similar audio interface where different choices, ---- either different question answers or menue choices are mapped to the various buttons on the top numbers row of the keyboard. all information is audio, so no screen reader is necessary once you've logued onto the site.
It is worth noting however, that the site audio takes the form of real audio files played through your web brouser, so you'll need to have either the official real player, or some other program such as real alternative installed to here the audio, ---- however links to said programs can be found on the site.
while some of the games are symplistic in style, many of the questions range from the obvious to the obscure, and some of the audio is nice, so if you want a quick rest from more high tention games this is the place.
