Main Document

A chat room, or chatroom, is defined as any form of synchronous conferencing, occasionally even asynchronous conferencing. The term can thus mean any technology ranging from real-time online chat and online interaction with strangers, instant messaging, and online forums, to fully immersive graphical social environments.

Some of the disability chat rooms you will find online cover general disability discussions, while other rooms may focus on a particular subject such as spinal cord injuries, wheelchair chat, head injuries - in fact, just about all types of disabilities and medical conditions you can think of.

Using disability chat rooms is a good way to collect people's point of view about certain situations, events and circumstances, especially those that weigh heavily on your mind. Knowing what other people think about it can help you feel better about things you may be worried or concerned about.

Online chat rooms are also frequented by both non-disabled and disabled persons looking for dates, love - even marriage. Many people with disabilities have found true love online via online chats.

Today you find many disability chat rooms are capable of being used by people who are blind or have vision impairments. If the person has software installed on their computer, known as a screen reader, you can read what is written in the chat room by other users.
