JIBO as a chess interface for those with disabilities


#1

I am a board member on the US Chess Special Needs Committee, a national committee that supports chess accessibility across the nation and Internationally. I have reported to the committee that JIBO currently has several interface that would meet and exceed accessibility concerns for the hearing (screen display) and visual (speech interface) impaired. Since he also has a fast internet connection, he should be able to interface with the several free and low cost computer to computer interface that are available. They also have electronic chess boards currently available that move the pieces as well.
