I am not aware of any accessible chats in the LMS systems. My
recommendation has always been to use an alternative chat system that is
accessible, and also discuss why chat is a bad idea for a number of types of
disabilities. Same things with most of the other collaborative tools, such
as the infamous white board.

Subject: [Athen] U of Montana Complaint and a Question

I assume most members have heard of the complaint against the U of Montana
see: http://tinyurl.com/9kwswpj

My question: one item is that the chat features of Moodle are not
accessible. Are the chat features of any LMS accessible? And if they are
not, how do we avoid this sort of complaint?
