So, I was thinking about using penfriend to label cards of various card games... Things like Cards Against Umanity and Sushi go, well, not exactly those specific games, but just to give you an idea of the complexity of the games I have in mind. I've used braille before, but my friends say that the pattern of the points is recognizable from behind the card and that spoils the fan a bit, because, with some practice, they can recognize the cards people are holding by looking at their back. I could put braille on some paper labels and stick them on the card's front so not to ruin it's back, i've done it too, but I'm limited in the characters I can type and, if I don't play a game for some time, it's hard to remember all the abbreviations I've used for cards with a lot of text.
To summarize, here are what I think could be the advantages of an audiolabel:
1 I can record a long message, ideal for cards with lot of text
2 The back of the card will remain clear
3 It would be very easy to pick up a game I've not played for a bit and play it without asking my friends explanations on some details of the card I don't remember.
I know that PenFriend offers the possibility to plug in hearphones and that it works with normal batteries, and the labels seems affordable.
So, what do you think about this solution? Do you see any potential drawbacks or problems? For example, i've not seen an actual label yet, and I'm afraid that it could cover some important part of the card making it unreadable by sighted people...
I hope I've been enough clear.
Thanks in advance for your opinions.
