    Can you see the pieces on the board? If so click on the piece you want to move and then click the square you want to move to. No way that I know of to enter moves or code in notation.

    hi, board on the screen is unaccessible for a screenreader cause totally graphic output.. On Gk to input a move I must add a text string to the myturnpage url..

    I'm not sure, but I think I read somewhere that this is possible using the mobile version of RHP - mobile.redhotpawn.com.

    Try sending feedback (see the link at the bottom of the page). If the facility is available, they will be able to tell you how to access it.

    When anyone's made a move, I can se under
    Game status
    Division A Season 1 : Rnd. 1
    In progress
    Last move : g7 - h6
    Move number : 28
    Half moves since last capture/pawn move : 5
    as an example.

    This means that whatever was in the square g7 has now moved to h6.
    An synthetic voice can read this for you, and you can deduct from this information what the real move was.

    There should be an input field where you could write the move in algebraic notation. Would that help you?

    Is this a serious request?

    I mean, when you mention that you would not be able to see the screen, how do you expect to play the game? Even if you'd be able to submit moves, you would not be able to memorize where all the pieces are after (say) 20 moves...

    Wondering / curious / etc..

    well, :-) visual impaired usually play with a braille chessboard moving pieces and studing theri next move and then writing on a pc algebraic notationand sending their next move .. there are also blind user that play blind games.. When I play email correspondece matches is easy but it takes more time and I like to experience other things ..I've found many submit mode... typing algebric notation in a form field, chosing in a combobox what to move, clicking an accessible boardgame... hope this is interesting to you.. ciao

    Just curious, but if you can't see the board, how are you reading this forum?

    Read his third post.

    He's got a 'reader' of sorts, either blows image way up, or sound?

    It does NOT interface with the RHP My Game page, and that's the problem.
