      Description

      While the accessible version of the Chat activity is accessible, it could be more usable. The way to navigate the discussion is a bit cumbersome to listen to for screen reader users because of the use of definition lists.

      It might be better to store the chat messages in a table with three columns. Column one would be a header column and include the poster's name. Column 2 would be the message. Column 3 would be the time stamp. This would allow screen reader users to simply navigate up and down the second column and easily hear the most pertinent information - the person's name and their message.

      The current definition lists, while semantically correct, are quite verbose and cumbersome to navigate for screen reader users.
