Chess is a game anyone can play, including those with a vision impairment. The word “Braille” is in our name because it was a major part of our activities when we were founded in the 1930s. Although some of our members use it as a medium, it is certainly not a requirement. We currently support over 150 visually impaired players and learners, and have over 70 members without a visual impairment who assist us in a variety of ways.
