It contains several features such as the ability to play chess either against a computer chess playing engine, against other people, to load chess format games from other chess playing software and thus allow postal play or game analysis, and to connect online to Fics and other chess servers to allow play over the internet.

Deffinately a useful program for anyone who uses Nvda or Jaws and would like to play some serious chess.
