Not much, yet. But the Xbox one can do a lot more than just video games...
mostly streaming video from Netflix and such too.

Sounds cool, but what purpose can Narrator serve with video games.

I think the only reason I continue to use portrait is because that is what
I'm used to.
Although, now that you mentioned more screen, I may have to take a look into
the Landscape view.

That would be cool. What happened to that instant translate add-on?

Kind of on the same subject, but I wonder why there's been nothing
incorporated into screen readers that would enable them to read subtitles.
I know it would serve no practical purpose outside of intertainment, but it
would enable us to watch movies in other languages.

Molly, you can play some video games, like Mortal Kombat. Also, there are plenty of PC and phone games, at Audiogames.net.

Stationery fighting games can be played. It's not too difficult.
Personally, I liked Pokemon Stadium for the Nintendo 64, but that's getting off topic.

No red ring of death on that one.

If I remember correctly, it drew from the Google translate service and then Google changed the translate service and the developer couldn't keep updating it.
I may not have all the details straight, but I'm pretty sure I got the gist right.

Really? I'll have to borrow the xbox. Oh who am I kidding? That will never happen lol. Can I get zombie games for pc? I like zombies 😀

No, when I got my iPad I didn't know I could install a screen reader on an ANdroid, so I picked the most accessible thing I could find.

Nope The xbox 1 is fine. The hard drive we bought as a backup containing all our games got smashed though. 😢

I was always more partial to vampires as apposed to zombies. At least vampires had a brain and didn't need to eat someone elses, :-D

Androids are okay. iPads are better because they get reliable updates and
fast lol.

My X-box got blown up during a power surge when I was around sixteen or so. Along with the frige, a computer, a TV VCR combo, you get the idea.

Shh, I'm using GoogleChrome, it might hear you.

Awesome 😊 I'll check it out.
