Winboard 4.5 is a free, accessible Chess program for the blind or those who can not use a mouse, such as quadriplegics, that works with the JAWS and NVDA screen readers and with full keyboard operation. The program interfaces automaticaly with the JAWS or NVDA screen readers. The program supplies blind users with feedback from the screen readers of any current board condition and many particular board conditions such as just pawns or knights or whose turn or time remaining. Partial sighted players use high contrast mode and adjust board and piece and font size or color. Available languages are English, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch and Russian. Installed "chess engines" and internet chess server (FICS) play with humans supply worthy opponents. Read "Setting Up WinBoard 4.5 for JAWS.doc" for the quick guide or "Winboard 4.5 for JAWS.doc" is the full manual. Keyboard shortcuts are provided in "keystrokes.doc".
