dc.description.abstractVirtual worlds are often seen as places where people can escape to because they take away real-life challenges, allowing people to achieve solidarity. Second Life empowers its disabled users through creating an atmosphere that allows them to interact with people similar to themselves. Second Life is full of communities that offer support, items, training and many other extras for people with disabilities. These communities do not discriminate or judge their members based on the visibility of their impairment.eng
