**** This app requires Special Playing Cards that can be purchased at http://www.qrspeak.com
If you have recently lost your eyesight, have been blind since birth, or have limited vision, enjoying playing cards can be hard to do. There is the option of braille cards but they are bulky to shuffle and if recently vison impaired you need to learn how to read the braille on the cards. We have created a new way of playing cards for the blind or vison impaired called Cards that Talk.
You simply place the card under the camera on the apple device and it will read the card to you. You can wear an earpiece so only you know what cards you hold.
Cards that Talk also features a continuous scanner so that once the app is started there is no need to touch the device again until you are done enjoying playing cards. There are buttons that you can either slow down the speed of the voice or speed it up depending on your preference. All that is left for you to do is enjoy playing cards again.
- Continuous scanning; no tapping the screen after each card
- variable speed control for voice
- large start scanning button so no fumbling trying to find it
Cards that Talk is free but will require our playing cards that can be purchased. Contact us at https://www.qrspeak.com and click the link to buy cards or we can answer any questions that you may have. The cards are professionally printed and will hold up like any other deck of cards. Since there is no braille on them they are smooth. This makes them easier to shuffle and to play with.
Bug fixes and new version to support iOS 11.
Cards that talk has been updated for iOS 11. Cards that talk now features the ability to control how many times the card value repeats when scanning. This option is available in the settings and help menu.
Ratings and Reviews
In adequate and hard to find instructions for the visually impaired. I bought the cards, downloaded the app, it. Does. Not. Work.
Thankfully I did not spend more on the accessories. I am very disappointed; this would have been wonderful if it worked.

This wonderful app speaks the numbers to me! The cards shuffle just like a normal deck of cards and I can tell which side is which by holding them under the app.
Thank You App Gods
