My introduction

Hello everyone here.
My name is Marco. I am from Slovakia and I am totally blind.
I play keyboard, piano, little Ukulele, some percussion instruments and ofcourse I have a tongue drum. I love not only sounds of this instrument, but also playing on this musical instrument.
Something about my hobbies:
I like to listen an Ethno music, but I listen also another musical genres, for example Classical music, New age, Rock, Jazz, Reggae ETC. Some of my interests are:
Audio games (games for the blind), composing music, accessible technology, language learning and also writing poems, song, short storries and blogging.
I use only a computer with keyboard and My screen reader, but sometimes I made a jokes, because this is not very terrible, if You are blind, like littlemole. You can also use this disability to go on a women toilets (for men) and vice versa. One great things of most blind person is our ear for music.
But, there are for example problems to read from pictures, seeing a pictures on computers and many things. Maybe to make a Tank drum. But I hope, that I become sighted one day.
I am very glad to come here. Marco

Re: My introduction

Hey, Marco.  Welcome!  Happy to have you here.  :)

Sounds like you play an interesting collection of instruments.  I took a listen to elements, and very much enjoyed it.  Looking forward to hearing more.  

Haha - your jokes are always welcome - you can never have too much laughter, right?  

I'm intrigued by the concept of audio games, that's something that I've not heard of - any recommendations / links?

You seem to be navigating your way around the site perfectly.  But if you have any questions / suggestions /etc.  I'm online at some point most days.

Re: My introduction

OK, for explanation:
Audiogames are games, that haven't any sound. This is opposite to video games for You. Those games must be great created, so menu is spoken, items have a special sounds for the blind people. Also, I've translated some games to Slovak and to Czech, but Czech is mutually inteligible games. You can find more on Wikipedia about Audio games, or in Google, ofcourse.
