Sonokids develops accessible tools and applications for blind and visually impaired children. Many of our games and remixers work with Flash.

We are aware that blind people may consider Flash to be a visual tool. However, at Sonokids we use Flash in an innovative and totally accessible way for audio.

We just wanted to inform you that again our great Christmas competition is on at our Sonokids accessible website www.sonokids.com. It would be wonderful if you would let blind and visual impaired children know about this.

With the online, free music-remixer you can record a personal audio Christmas-e-card, add a personal wish, select one of the illustrations which have been created by students of the Royal Blind School in Edinburgh, Scotland and then send the card to friends and family.

By recording with the Christmas remixer not only are unique accessible Christmas-cards sent around the world, but young senders can also enter their musical remix for the Sonokids Christmas Competition 2005.

We appreciate your help in spreading the word about the Christmas remixer and we'd like to take this opportunity to wish you all the very best of holidays and a wonderful New Year full of joy, accessibility and. music!
