We’re an open online community of individuals dedicated to creating an inclusive world; we believe that accessibility is for everyone.
Social media has great power to connect people and we hope to accomplish and encourage in-depth discussion and spread knowledge about the work people are doing to enable greater access and inclusion through whatever means.
We host weekly video interviews and twitter chats with people who are contributing to making the world a more inclusive place through technology or innovating to enable wider participation in society for people with disabilities.
The topics will be wide-ranging and we want to encourage discussion and ensure everyone has a voice on social media so we encourage you to take part by tweeting and using the hashtag #axschat
You can always view previous chats via our archive.

We are very happy that our friends at Barclays are supporting AXSChat – this support will help us to sustain our efforts, continue to grow the community and allow us to buy in some paid services for work we’ve been doing in our spare time. We acknowledge the huge amount of work Barclays do in accessibility, applaud the fact that members of the accessibility team and people throughout the business participate regularly and are excited to have support from an organisation that is really pushing the accessibility agenda forwards.
We’d encourage all of our community members to follow @BarclaysAccess to keep up to date with the great work that they do in the accessibility and inclusion agenda.
We are a global community and the written word can be misinterpreted so:
- Be respectful.
- Be courteous.
- Be part of something bigger than yourself.
Everyone makes mistakes once in a while and has errors in judgment.
With that in mind we are adopting the three strikes you’re out guideline.
