Hello Anne.

It won't let you bplay online against someone, but in all other respects spoonbill software's chess program is exactly what your looking for.


It comes with comprehensive rules and move lists, and you can play against the computer. it's also absolutely free!

I believe Thom ward has currently got it hosted on his site at http://www.usagamesinteractive.com/, ---- but you can also go directly to the developer's website at http://www.omninet.net.au/~irhumph/blindgamers.htm and send him an E-mail requesting the game, ---- he apparently enjoys talking to players which is why he does things this way.

You can also check out his other games there (I personally do rather like his Cribbage, hearts and Uno games).

His stuff is also free.

if you want something more in the manner of a chess analiser, coach, and board layout printer, you can also try the Kchess programs from http://www.arkangles.com/

These aren't free, but come with many more features than Ian Humphries, ---- pluss are probably better in terms of teaching you the game. You can't play online with them, but you could send attachments directly from the program to other players and thus play by E-mail or chat program.

Subject: [Audyssey] seeking very basic chess instructions


Hi folks,

I'm trying to get bakc in to playing chess after being away from it for
quite some time. Is there somewhere I can download a very, very basic chess manual or instructions. I'm not looking for fancy strategies at this point,
just something in plain English that I can quickly use to remind myself of
basic chess moves, which pieces can move which ways, etc.

Also, is there anywhere, and with any program preferably free or an extremly
low cost, that a totally blind person can play chess online with others?

Thanks.

~Ann
