Hi,
Just wondering but why do we have checkers and draughts? I could've sworn
those were the same thing.

Best Regards,
Hayden

Subject: [Audyssey] Fwd: VO accessible Chess, Checkers, Draughts and Xaingqi
games released for iPhone, iPad & iTouch

Hi All,
I thought I'd pass this along in case there's anybody who would want
accessible versions of Chess or the other games for an Apple device on this
list.  I've personally tried out the chess app and found it very nice
indeed.
Best,
Zack.

> Today Apple approved and released the accessible versions of Marcel
Nijman's Chess-wise Apps! In addition, Marcel modified three of his other
game apps to make them VO accessible. Those Apps are: Checker-wise,
Draughts-wise and Xiangqi-wise. These apps are all now available worldwide
in the App Store and in the following languages: English, Spanish, Russian,
German and Dutch. Marcel hopes to add Polish, Czech and French translations
in the next update. The viphone mailing list, Scott Howell and Geoff Waller
in particular, were instrumental in providing input, feedback and other
information to Marcel during this process.
> 
> Each of these four Apps is a universal App, which means they will run
correctly on the iPhone, iTouch and iPad. WHile there is a free version of
the Chess-wise App, I would urge you to consider purchasing the Pro version
to support Marcel's work. The price is only US $2.99 for the Chess and
Checker Apps, and only US $1.99 for the Draughts and Xiangqi Apps. I believe
Marcel is the kind of developer who deserves our support one hundred
percent.
> 
> I've not tried the 3 other games yet, but I can tell you the Chessboard
and Chess pieces are now recognized and read aloud by VO. You can navigate
the board using a one-finger swipe, or you can just slide one finger around
the board and VO will announce the coordinates and the name of a piece if
one occupies that square. To make a move, use one finger to locate the piece
you want to move, then double-tap. VO will announce "Selected." Now use one
finger again to locate the destination square and double-tap again. Please
note that this is considered a first version of this game in it's accessible
form. While Marcel has made the heart of the App accessible, it is a very
feature-rich App which will require additional coding to make it fully
accessible. Marcel has asked that those of us who use the Apps provide
feedback to him so he can continue to refine and update the accessibility
features.
