Maximize the main window
From the very start, one of Fathom It!'s primary goals was to enable people with sight disabilities to enjoy the game. To that end, a great deal of effort was invested to enable a player to maximize Fathom It!'s board. By maximizing the main window, the player can enjoy large squares, numbers, buttons, etc.
Run in 640x480 VGA mode for largest solver hint text
Although the player can maximize the main window, the automatic solver window (which provides optional hints) does not scale to a larger size. It is recommended to run Fathom It! in 640x480 VGA mode. This will cause the solver hint text to be displayed in the largest font possible.
Possible future feature: total audio interface to Fathom It!
The current version of Fathom It! would be difficult for a blind user to play. If there were enough public interest, a future version could include speech synthesizer features as pronouncing:
· current square coordinates
· pieces along a row/column
· pieces around the current square
· row/column tallies
· positions and directions of all ships found so far
· ships left to find
· automatic solver hint text
The author does not have experience in this important area, and would appreciate hearing from anyone interested in such a version.
