Chat rooms present one of the more difficult web challenges for people with disabilities.
Since communication in a chat room tends to be fast-paced, people who type slowly may have difficulty keeping up, and people with cognitive or learning disabilities may have difficulty tracking the multiple simultaneous threads of conversation.
My primary work experience was acquired at a domestic violence agency and was focused on personal relationships, physical and emotional abuse, developmental needs of children and parenting skills, healing from hurts of the past and traumatic life events, assertiveness training, stress management, and conflict resolution.For screen reader users, the accessibility of chat rooms depends in part on how they were developed.Screen readers are able to handle some HTML chat rooms, but most current chat rooms are developed using Java, with little or no attention devoted to the application's accessibility.Voice chat products are becoming increasingly popular and allow users to chat verbally through their computer's microphone and speakers.In addition, the text and voice chat features of instant messaging programs like MSN Messenger are generally accessible and are well supported by assistive technologies.
