http://www.gci-net.com/users/j/johnw/EmacsChess.html

is the only one I know.  Its still sort of in development, but
you can already use it to play against gnuchess, or even on the
free internet chess server (FICS).

It offers a special display type chess-plain which is well suited
for braille users methinks.  Emacspeak extensions should be easily doable
since emacs-chess is very module.  Infact there is already a chess-announce.el
module, which uses Festival to speak the moves of your oponent.
