How can i play chess

Forum
iOS and iPadOS Gaming

Hi there, does anyone know of an accessible chess app? i want to start playing chess. Does anyone use voiceover to play chess on an iphone? How does it work? Also does anyone know of any good chess boards for the blind? I have a board where the pieces fit into wholes in the board, but I find that they come out too easily.

Hi. In the past, I have used Shredder and chess-wise on my iPhone with voiceover. If I remember correctly, either of these apps can be used to serve as a chessboard, too. Have fun! And let me know if you’d like to play a game.

ChessWise is another good chess software if you want to multiplay.
If you're looking for a web browser version, Lichess.org is pretty great for learning the game, watching live games, playing games. They even use the stockfish engine as well, so it's worth checking it out.
Quinton C playroom also has a chess table where you can play other people.
