I hope I get the game from him soon to check it out. I don't play Chess 
often but always like to see how well accessible games are implemented. I 
expect he'll get flooded with emails this time around. Chess is pretty 
popular. In layman's terms, what is a rating of 2300 like?

>>
>> You can read all about the new game by visiting the blind gamers page at:

>> www.spoonbillsoftware.com.au/blindgamers.htm
>>
>> BG Chess Challenge runs in three different modes: Blind accessible, 
>> Vision
>> impaired and Sighted, so it is suitable for all levels of visual acuity.
>> It is also suitable for beginners as well as experienced chess players. A
>> separate Word document explains how to play chess, if you have never
>> played before or need to brush up on the rules and you can set the
>> computer player's skill level anywhere between Novice and Expert, so that
>> you can be ensured of a challenging game regardless of your own skill
>> level. In blind mode, graphics are still provided so that sighted spouses
>> can play along with their blind partners. As with all Spoonbill 
>> Software's
>> accessible games, it is completely self voicing. You will only need your
>> screen reader to read the on-line help, or the separate How To Play Chess
>> document.
>>
>> BG Chess Challenge is the fourteenth game in the Blind Gamers series of
>> accessible games and is free for the asking. Just reply to this email
>> requesting BG Chess Challenge and stating your full name and country of
>> residence. Only people who have kept me up to date with their latest 
>> email
>> address will be able to be notified of new games. Why not send for a copy
>> today, even if you've never played before, and take up the chess
>> challenge?
