I want to analyze position presented on meeting, web page or video but problem is that I do no have FEN to start such analysis.

I want to capture screenshot that convert it into FEN. How can I do it on Windows?

On Windows I can use Shift+Window+S to capture region than save to image or to clipboard. Is anybody using some software or tool to do it?

I can write such software with use deep learning but it takes time and maybe it is not need to invent wheel again. How to do it?


This will do it. https://chessvision.ai/ There is also the Chessify app on the ios store where you can take pictures of chessboards and import the position.

Hope this helps!

  • All application is good but still not automated so you need make screenshot before. I think that chessvision is the best on Window 10 and Chessify on phone. – Chameleon Apr 12 at 18:54
