Participate in an Online Community
Yahoo hosts a variety of online communities that bring together individuals from around the world who share common interests, questions, and concerns. Some of the issues addressed in these communities are directly related to disability and accessibility, and may be useful to you. However, we also know that individuals with disability are, well, individuals, whose interests extend far beyond their disability. And that’s what these communities are really all about: Everything.
So we invite you to dive in. Engage and explore your world using the resources below. Contribute to them. Make them your own. We think you’ll discover that these communities are among the most vibrant, robust, and diverse places on the Internet.
We look forward to meeting you there!
Join a fantasy sports league or create one of your own on Yahoo Fantasy Sports. Pick your players, draft your team and manage your roster to earn points based on how your players perform in real life, just like a real general manager. While you enjoy your team’s progress each week, Yahoo Fantasy Sports tracks player stats, computes point totals and updates league standings for you. Best part? Monday-morning quarterbacking on the Fantasy Sports message board.
From pets to politics, Yahoo Answers is a great place to ask Yahoo users a question or share your knowledge on just about anything and everything. Participate often and share great answers to earn points and gain levels. You’ll receive increased recognition and the ability to ask, answer, and rate answers more frequently—and bragging rights.
Yahoo Groups is home to one of the world's largest collections of online discussion boards on just about every topic you can imagine. And, if you don’t find what you’re looking for, you can create a new group of your own. It’s easy too! You can read and respond to the group right on the Yahoo Groups web page or by using email.
From "accessibility for librarians" to "living with a disability" to the "blind film critic" Tumblr offers a unique and innovative way of exploring disability. And it includes a blog by Yahoo's own Accessibility Team.
