I do not know how many people have heard of XMPP.

Basically it is a protocol for among other things, allowing IMs to pass
between different services

The Extensible Messaging and Presence Protocol (XMPP) is the IETF's
formalization of the base XML streaming protocols for instant messaging and
presence developed within the Jabber community starting in 1999.

- from http://www.xmpp.org/summary.html

I am wondering if anyone knows of IM clients that are both accessible and
adhere to this protocol?

It think it is going to take off big time and accessibility is going to be a
major issue with these clients.
