APH Crossword App logo Crossword Puzzles for Everyone

Crossword puzzles are a fun way to pass time and stimulate your mind. When you finish a crossword puzzle, getting all the right answers, there’s such a sense of accomplishment. Unfortunately, a traditional printed crossword puzzle isn’t accessible. There’s no way for someone who is blind to navigate the small boxes on the page – that’s until we got involved.

Crossword creates a game that everyone can play. Using a web browser, and a screen reader, a narrator brings you the crossword puzzle experience. All you have to do is choose a clue from either across or down, to get started. You can then hit the return key to go to the line of the puzzle where you can start typing in your answer. As you type, the screen reader will let you know if there are any letters that already exist on that line.

Available for desktop and mobile! To get started head to crossword.aphtech.org now.

Note: Crossword is available on modern internet browsers, such as Edge, Chrome, Firefox, and Safari. This works with standard screen readers, such as JAWS, Narrator, NVDA, and Chromevox.
