Re: IM Accessibility

I have been using Windows Live Messenger for years with a friend who is a
screen reader user. We have also been using Twitter...he uses Twitthat.

Is WebAIM on Twitter? Should it be?

Anyone interested in exploring a Twitter "group" regarding accessibility? Or
does one already exist?

Does anyone have any experience with the accessibility of IM clients. If
so can you point me to either research or make recommendations. It looks
like the Spark client that I was given to test is a no-go with JAWS 9
but I may be missing something.
