Software is so broken

So now I can only hear my own moves.  Chess.com just keeps finding little ways to make bullet unplayable.

Jiminy Cricket! How are you going to get all your money back for those 5000 games you played for free?

I used to be a diamond member actually, but thanks for the snark.  Maybe also play a few more bullet games before you comment on issues regarding them.

You are the one who felt it necessary to declare chess.com unplayable after a minor technical problem.

Why not just file a bug report? They work hard to fix things in their control.

If you played much bullet you would know that audio cues are not a minor thing, and this is on top of multiple forum posts and bug reports from a number of players, especially in bullet, regarding lag in bullet games.  Add it all up, and I rue the $100 I spent on diamond membership last year.

Why do you need to hear anything when your opponent moves? Are you not looking at the board on your screen?

some people are blind so they need the audio cues to know when its their turn again

I get that, but how are you moving the pieces online, if you cant see?

BlackRavioli

computer reads out the board then you tell it your moves
