Welcome to RS Games! Since 2009, RS Games has developed online board, card, and dice games that are accessible to the blind and visually impaired. Over 20 games are currently available including Monopoly, Uno, Blackjack, Yahtzee, Farkle, and Scrabble. Click here to see a full list of games.
On December 20, 2009, RS Games released the first accessible online version of the classic board game Monopoly. Since then, we have grown to over 20 titles and kept a tradition of releasing a new game on December 20 of each year to celebrate our anniversary. This year we are celebrating 11 years, and are excited to launch another first in the world of online games for the blind; an accessible online rendition of the classic word game Scrabble!
Scrabble requires version 2.2 of the RS Games client, which is now available for download for Windows and Mac. The new version includes enhancements necessary for Scrabble to function and fixes a bug where Voice chat did not work for Mac users.
Additionally, we have released a new version of the RS Games web client with some enhancements to improve the experience for sighted players when playing Scrabble. This is still very much a work in progress, but we hope you'll give it a try and let us know of any feedback you may have. Support for Scrabble in the iOS app is coming soon.
Enjoy, and happy holidays from all of us at RS Games!
Our games are free to play on Windows, Mac OS and the web. An iOS app is also available, with a small up-front purchase required for some games.
If you are a screen reader user, download and install the RS Games client for the best experience. The client will output directly to JAWS, NVDA or VoiceOver, and includes sound effects to enhance the gaming experience. Note that the client does not display any text on screen, so if you do not use a screen reader it will not work for you (in this case, you should use the web client, see below).
The latest version of the RS Games client is 2.2, released on December 20, 2020.
VoiceOver users can download the RS Games app from the Apple app store. Like our desktop client, the app outputs through speech only and does not display any text on screen.
Sighted users, as well as users of Android and other platforms without a native RS Games client can play RS Games from a web browser. The web client displays text on screen, so those who don't use screen readers can enjoy the games.
