I am a tutor at a college in the UK. Last year I used UE4 with Blueprints as part of a level 3 Software Development and Games Programming course to great effect.
This year I have a blind student (no light perception at all) who is on the course and wants to learn UE4 using blueprints to create a game with uses audio, rather than visual, cues for the player.
To do this I am trying to get funding for a 3D printer, so I can print out various Blueprint nodes, with Braille, which the student can then connect using real, physical connectors. His learning support assistant can then upload his new network of nodes to the UE4 blueprint editor and he can then run it and see what happens.
To do this I have entered a JISC event, ‘Accessible by Design’ (If anyone wants to vote, I would really appreciate it BTW).
Has anyone on here tried anything like this before?
Any advice anyone can give will be very welcome.
Also, has anyone tried to parse the Blueprint source code you get when you copy and paste a network? We intend doing this in Python, any suggestions on which libraries to use?
