Eyes & Hands-free Pong Game

I made an interactive program with Python that allows a player to play Pong Game without using eyes and hands.

Pong Game is a two-dimensional sports game that simulates table tennis. The player controls an in-game paddle by moving it vertically across the left or right side of the screen. They can compete against another player controlling a second paddle on the opposing side. 

In my interactive program, a player would use their voice to control the paddle by raising and lowering their pitches. As the ball passes through a specific section on the screen, my interactive program would make a sound (not literal audio) to indicate where the ball’s location is. As described, my interactive program would allow a player to play the Pong Game without their hands and eyes.

Here is a video demo of myself playing the game. Here is the python code for my interactive program! Feel free to git clone my folder and run “python3 pong-audio.py” in my folder to launch the program!
