Voice Chess is the first-ever Android chess app that enables users to speak their moves.

Key Features:
• Fully-functional chess app
• Speech Input
• Touch Input

For years, chess players have imagined using just speech to move pieces. Voice Chess achieves this goal through voice command integration. Voice Chess also allows for touch interface as a secondary mode of input.

More handy features include Undo and New Game options. In the lower-left corner is a notification box that indicates whose move it is, whether a move is invalid ("I"), or whether a player is in check ("C"). Voice Chess also displays the rows and columns in algebraic notation, the standard for inputting moves. For example, speaking "a2 'move' a4" at the start of a game moves the a-rank pawn two squares forward. See the directions in the app for more info!

Needs work I have been looking for an app like this for ages, so I was quite excited to see this. I'm pretty sure the developers are working on it, and improvements are on the way, but currently it is not really usable. Like others have mentioned, the recognition is not good. After 10 tries of e2 'move' e4, I got various combinations of : ? -> e4, e2 -> ?, e2 -> b4, and others, but never actually e2->e4. I would pay for this app if it worked well. Also, it should support short algebraic notation, this is the way chess players talk.

alternates between recognizing my "e" as either "d" or "b" but never as actually "e" Sad because I would definately pay for this app if it worked well. Especially with chromecast support with or without multi-player

Abysmally Bad The bloody things don't move. I'm wondering if the developer put 'voice chess' on the product title line to catch the attention of chess enthusiasts that browse the android marketplace(s) everyday looking for something different, or 'the future is now' types that can play chess but don't have a real love for it (I fall into that bracket) but think the program is cool in a Star Trek/Wars kind of way. Whichever type you are is completely irrelavant. It registers commands, but the pieces don't move.
