  • (2021-03-03) Narwhal Kid: Great! The only problems are that in special modes or winning by abandonment, it will just say "(color) WINS BY..." and doesnt say anything. It's still epic though
  • (2021-02-24) Andrew: Unfortunately, it does not work when playing against the computer in chess.com. Odd, but there it is.
  • (2021-02-14) Tycho Davydov: Unfortunately the extension doesn’t work at all.
  • (2021-01-31) Tuomas Tuomivaara: Very rarely announces moves. What could be the problem? Changing move settings from figurines to text doesn't help. I mean the dev won't reply but if anyone else has a fix?
  • (2021-01-24) Daniel: Doesn't work
  • (2021-01-12) Giancarlo Picardi: This thing doesn't work.
  • (2020-12-25) carlos diaz: Dejo de funcionar
  • (2020-12-04) samuel numez: It works on every other site except on chess.com, That's bad for business.
  • (2020-11-22) Thota Srinivas: it is not working
  • (2020-11-03) Valentin Degenne: not working... sometimes it works but during one game then if I refresh the page the sounds are not playing. This is infuriating because the script seems to work but one little bug is causing the whole program completely unusable. I hope you fix it, or maybe share the project on GitHub so developers like myself can contribute ?

  • (2020-09-02) sebastian ts: Great, really funny. I just leave it on for games that last longer than 3 minutes. I really appreciate the art behind this kind of plugin so congrats to the Pavel, the Developer, Daniel Rensch for his comments and the chess.com Team
  • (2020-08-06) Sameer Syed: Makes my games x10 more engaging!
  • (2020-07-04) Frédéric PAILLAUGUE: From now on it doesn't work properly as the pieces are not announced : if your Knight goes to f3, it will announce only "f3", and it's a big issue because you don't know if the pawn moved to f3 or another piece... I also found a mistake when my opponent's King went to g7, it announced "Rook g7". When you wanna play without the screen, it's highly problematic. Please consider fixing this dear chess.com crew :) Thanks !
  • (2020-04-12) Carl Stephens: i tried it for the first time this afternoon, after installing the extension and activating, it didnt work during my first game. after restarting my browser and enabling again it did work. however the announcements were confusing, it was announcing pawn moves correctly so when i played e4 it would announce e4, but when either me or my opponent played any other move that wasnt a pawn, so for example a knight, it would only announce the destination square, ie i play Nf3 and it would only announce f3 this needs fixing because i often play with a DGT board connected and if i'm not watching the screen, and i hear it announce f3 thats gonna potentially cause me to move the wrong piece. please look into this. thanks !
  • (2020-03-25) Joshua Sampson: Fun to hear the moves!
  • (2020-03-05) Wojciech Reza: very often not working
  • (2020-02-12) Naomi La Nasa: This is awesome! I don't know why but like to leave Live Chess on "watch" and just hear Danny commentating moves.

  • (2020-09-09, v:0.0.1) Daniele Trovato: Language
    Hello! I would like to translate the extension for Chrome "Vocal Commentary" in Italian. I noticed that inside the folder of the extension there are two folder: Danny and Default. Which are the two options available. Inside there are the mp3 folder with all the previously recorded voices. I simply recorded a new set of audio files in my language (italian). I simply replaced the correct mp3 files in their correct folder, and mantaining che correct name of every single file. But I don't know why, it crashes! Why? I have only replaced the mp3 files! If there something I could do to fix that? Thank you

  • (2020-05-06, v:0.0.1) Carl Stephens: Chess.com Voice Commentary
    i'm struggling to get this to work properly for me when in use with a DGT board, the issue i'm running into is, the software announces pawn moves correctly, but when my opponent makes a "piece" move eg a knight move or a bishop move, it only announces the destination square, ie i play Nf3 it announces only f3 when in fact it should have announced Nf3 which it doesn't simply put if this keeps happening the software is useless to me, as i'm still having to refer to the screen to find the correct move ! please resolve many thanks
  • (2020-04-18, v:0.0.1) Cordial Iter: DGT e board
    A lot of people use your extension for playing with a DGT e board. We would like to have a third option that - announces only the opponent's moves - in a common and usual way, e.g. "Knight f3" (instead of only "f3") and "Bishop takes f3". Thank you and stay healthy
  • (2020-04-14, v:0.0.1) Fabio Facciaroni: The extension doesn't speak
