Hi,
I read a very very intersting article about Touchscreens and blind user.
Apple has a VoiceOver program.

When you move your finger about the touchscreen it reads the name of the
buttons and textfields.
When you tip a second time it is started.

Photo and Twitter:
When he there is a barrier he can make pictures and
ask other people in the internet what this is. They give him the
information.

Facetime:
This helps him when he does not know where to go.
He calls his friend and show the environment to him.

Imagine a point&click game that is played without graphic :-)
With finger movement about the screen.
