Wow!

the Americans are once again proved much ahead of England in terms of Vi acdcess.


I had to pay an exorbitant price for an adapted chess set which came with no materials at all.

Also, while the pieces are very tactile, the contrast on them is horrible! It's more like slightly light brown vs rather darker brown than black and white, which is really annoying if I want to use my vision as well.

I've certainly seen better adapted chess sets than this, ---- but once again showing the Rnib's inherent stupidity, ---- this is the only chess set they sell!

Beware the grue!

Some questions for you in order to get you started playing again:

What screen reader do you use? If it is JAWS, I can send you a free chess program that you can play against, as well as connect to the Internet to play against others, although I have not tried this feature out as of yet.

Do you have an adapted chess set for blind people to use, rather than having to use speech to explore a chess board during the game?

I can also help you, probably one on one, as to which pieces move where and the basic rules of the game. Or, there is a totally free correspondence course, either on audio cassettes or in braille, available from the Hadley School for the Blind. All course materials are yours to keep after you complete the course, including a very nice adapted chess set.

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
