My name is Michael, and I am a blind backgammon player. So far, there is absolutely no analysis software out there for blind backgammon players. I have contacted several makers of analysis software to ask for accessibility to be implemented into their software if possible, but none have seemed possible or willing to do this. I am emailing you for that very reason. I use a screen reader called Jaws for Windows and also Nonvisual Desktop Access (NVDA) regularly. I decided to contact you because I found that your program uses python. It should be relatively simple, then, to integrate speech into your application. If you wished to do this (and I would be greatful if you could) then there is a python  library that can do this relatively easily. It is called accessible output, and can be found here:
Eagerly awaiting your response,
