Hi all,

While I haven’t tried the software yet, I applaud their desire to give
users more choices when it comes to playing chess in an accessible

However, I wanted to correct a statement that is made on the web page:
winboard is in fact accessible using Jaws and NVDA from the keyboard.
I have yet had to resort to using the Jaws Curser or any other method
to simulate mouse clicks.  More information and a download link to
Winboard can be found at http://audiogames.net/db.php?id=Win+board.

I’m glad to see that at least some developers are still interested in
games that require deep thinking and strategy.  No matter what genre
of game is created, the more options we have, the better.
