Bringing Chess to Visually Impaired People


Kaisa talking chessclock

Kaisa is a talking digital chess clock made by Fundosa Accesibilidad SA,

The time is spoken through an earpiece for those who cannot see the display and all programming options are accessible. These clocks also enable visually impaired players to use incremental time controls which is impossible with a tactile clock.

A visually impaired person can program all features of a Kaisa however the learning curve is quite steep and the included documentation is sparse. We recommend visually impaired users read our Kaisa guide.
