Re: Accessible chat room facility

We've got an article on accessible chats at

We have developed and used a prototype of an HTML chat with
accessibility features in the past at
http://acropolis.usu.edu/webaimchat/. Though not perfect, this does
demonstrate the ability of synchronous chats to be made more

WebAIM is currently in the final stages of development of a more
accessible chat program that will be available in PHP. If any of you
have suggestions or ideas for an HTML-based chat program, let me know.
