I am thinking of opening a chat room for the blind. Would this be something you would be interested in?

Re:We need more ways to chat



Yes, i agree, because sometimes a visually challenged person might be feeling down and will need someone to lift his/her spirits, so I definitely believe that we need so more ways to chat.

Re:We need more ways to chat



I agree and I have taken it up to start a chat server. as soon as it is up and running I will post it. I will test it out with Jaws first to make sure it works and as for the question, if anyone knows of other places to chat with the blind that would be outstanding. I myself am blind and want to help others. I am an MCT and an MCSE but I think I might be running the chat server on a linux box to make it free for me to operate!

Re:We need more ways to chat



a chat room would be great! i am regestard as blind and find it really diffucalt to meet new people in my own area. maybe you ort to consider a chat room which has VIP fasillaties.


I agree



I think we need more places to interact withe each other on the internet in general. This site is good. It's the first i've seen. I went on the ftp site but I don't have an ISP e-mail account. As far as I know that is the only type of account that they will except for signing up. Nevertheless I would love to make friends who are blind/VI if anyone wants here is my e-mail address: heyuberber@yahoo.com

The American Foundation for the Blind endeavors to keep advertisers off the Message Boards, though individuals sharing information about products that have been successful for them are welcome.


Re:We need more ways to chat



Hi all!! I definitely feel that visualy impaired people need more places to chat. I'm in London, England, and one of the only blind chatrooms here was run by the RNIB (Royal National Institute for the Blind). It was successful and very popular but was overtaken by advertisers and people misusing the service and was closed down about 2 years ago. Since then i've been searching for something similar. I have found many chats geared towards disability but very few for the blind. Anyone know of any that are out there? xx


Re:We need more ways to chat



As soon as i get a chat up and running Ill post it here for yu and anyone else that would like to attend


Re:We need more ways to chat



I am a sighted person who would also like to "chat" with the blind. However, I don't mean chat in the Internet sense. My typing skills are pathetic, and chat rooms just go too fast. I would rather trade e-mails.

It would be even better to hang out in a coffee shop, and talk in person. But I'll take what I can get.
