Mush-z is a MUSHClient soundpack for Alter Aeon, one of the best and most active muds I have ever played. Alter Aeon has been my home since 2004 and I have been playing since then. One of the best muds I have ever played. It has hundreds of areas to explore, monsters to kill and a delightful amount of different spells and skills to use.
Alter Aeon is a free online text game set in a world of swords and sorcery. It has a huge custom world to explore, quests to complete, and hundreds of puzzles to solve. There are always other players on-line, whether for help, competition, or just to talk with. The game is blind-friendly for the visually impaired.
Mush-z, as mentioned above, is a MUSHClient soundpack for Alter Aeon. It's main goal is to make the game easier to play for blind and visually impaired people using a screen reader. Mush-z currently works with NVDA, jaws for windows, window eyes and hal. Some of its features are:

To use this updater, you need to download it and put it in mushclient's folder. This is as easy as going to your start menu, programs, mush-z, and open your worlds folder. From there, go back up one folder using the backspace key on the list of items, and you will be in the mush-z folder. Copy and paste the update.exe file you downloaded above and replace the old one.
If you don't want to use the start menu to open your worlds folder, or you have mushclient installed somewhere else, go to the mushclient folder manually and copy the file there. Mush-z is usually installed in my documents/mush-z.

Well, I've been using soundpacks for muds ever since 2006, and this is one of the best ones I've ever come across. The ambiance, music, and all the other sounds combine to make it a more fully realized environment than just reading text would be. I encourage anyone who is a fan of muds, to try Alter Aeon and Mush-z, blind or not.
