I am pleased to announce the release of Winboard 4.5 for JAWS. It is the first advanced Chess program for the blind, low visioned and persons who can not use a mouse and is free software. The program uses the JAWS screen reader to recite the moves, positions and other board conditions. The program is completely keyboard accessible. It can connect to Internet Chess Servers such as FICS where thousands play. Available languages in addition to English are German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch and Russian. It can provide Chess engine opponents and output position analysis with today's very strongest Chess engines. The program is provided with two Chess engines, one for standard chess and analysis and one that plays some variant types of chess. Winboard 4.5 for JAWS represents the very first advanced, purpose built chess program for the blind and handicapped and uses the standardized PGN format into which all the games of the today and of the great master made be found. Winboard 4.5 for JAWS is free and available at the Winboard forum at this link; http://www.open-aurec.com/wbforum/viewtopic.php?f=19&t=51528&start=1

By way of introduction, my name is Cecil Taylor I am a volunteer with a group called IT CAN HELP we try as far as possible to help disavled people with computer problems. Anything from advice on software/hardware to installing a programme. We are trying to let a many people as we can know about us as possible, so that we can get the message across to those who need help. Do you know a good way of doing this? We have little or no budget so have nothing to spend, your advice would be very welcome though. Thank you CT.
