How do blind people play games?

Once upon a time I disovered a site which
let me download and run many of the old
Scott Adams adventure games which I
used to get for my old Apple //c :-)
Once I blew the dust off of them,
they ran on my Linux system just fine and I had a blast from the past.
I had to download and install a special interpreter to run
the games. They were encoded into a special format for the interpreter.
Sorry, but this was a while ago and I don't have them on hand any more.
