I think your best bet would be to try the course from the Hadley school for
the blind, Chess For Beginners.  It is only a 6 lesson correspondence
course, and you can get the material in either braille or on audio
cassettes, along with a brailled book of diagrams to use during the lessons.
Plus, you receive a very good chess set adapted for blind players that you
can keep, along with the course materials for future reference if you finish the course. I don't know their URL offhand, but you should be able to find
it using a search engine such as

www.google.com

if nobody else can give it to you on this list.

Anyway, briefly, bishops, rooks, (also known as castles), and Knights, the
King, the Queen and pawns capture pieces by moving to the squares on which
the enemy piece rests.  Pieces that are jumped by a Knight remain on the
board.  Check is when your king will be captured on your opponent's next
move unless you prevent it by blocking the path or moving the King out of
harm's way, or by capturing the attacking piece.  If you can do none of
these things and cannot prevent your King from being taken, it is checkmate
and the game is over.  HTH.

Well, Charles. Can a castle take out pieces and if so how? Can the bishop
and all the others take out pieces? If so, how? When a knight jumps a piece,
does it take out the piece it jumps? What's check or checkmate? I need to
know everything about chess. If anybody knows about a review on chess let me
know. Thanks.
HAVE FUN!
