One of caption service system for deaf or hearing impaired people at
meetings uses IRC.  Through our caption support experience, we believe that
off-line/on-line meeting/conference communication support for deaf/hearing
impaired, deaf-blind, blind, autism, CP, cognitively/intellectually disabled
and other variety of people with disabilities in attendance may require a
lot of types of presentation of synchronized multimedia for their full
participation.  Timed text is a basic component for the communication
support required by variety of people with disabilities.
