How many gamers can claim that they’ve through a game blind? Well, that’s exactly what one man is attempting, although it’s not by choice. Jordan, blind since birth, is playing through The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time with help from the YouTube community. According to Jordan, he is able to progress thanks to “very specific, script-stile directions.” It’s definitely great to see him overcome his visual disability and be assisted in his conquest of Ocarina of Time, as many would agree that it is one Zelda title which should not be missed out on.
“My name is Jordan and I have been blind since birth. I have always been a fan of Ocarina of Time, and here I will show videos of me playing through it (and other games such as Castlevania, pokemon and possibly other Zelda’s) to the best of my abilities. To navigate on my Computer I use a program called JAWS. It reads the words to me and allows me to navigate my pc with ease…To type I’ve memorized the keys. Just so you know, I have done all of these bosses MANY times.”
