Dear Federationists,

While you attend Washington Seminar on Monday, 
January 27th, be sure to stop by one of the NFB 
Legal Department’s survey tables.  In an effort 
to gather critical accessibility information from 
members, the NFB Legal Department, along with 
Brown, Goldstein & Levy, and D.C.-based law firm 
of Mehri & Skalet, will be conducting member surveys on the following topics:
·        Electronic Health Records
o   We are seeking information from employees and 
students required to use electronic health record 
systems on the job or for school purposes.
·        Pre-employment Testing
o   We are seeking information from anyone who 
has attempted to fill out an online job 
application or take an online employment test 
with screen access software or expects to do so 
in the near future. If the test you have taken or 
plan to take was developed by Kenexa, or if the 
job you have applied for or will be applying for 
is with a federal government contractor, we would 
be especially interested in speaking with you.
·        Technology in Higher Education
o   We are gathering information from college and 
university students regarding Web applications 
for assignment collaboration and other technologies.
·        Common Core State Standard Assessment Field Tests
o   We are seeking information regarding K-12 
students that will be taking a field test or have 
been excluded from taking the test due to blindness.
·        Online and Mobile Banking
o   We are gathering information pertaining to 
account management and other features.

Survey tables will be located in the following 
locations at the Holiday Inn Capitol, Washington DC:

·        Apollo Room, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.
·        Discovery II Room, from 2:30 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
·        Discovery II Foyer, from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

If you cannot attend Washington Seminar this year 
and are able to contribute to our information 
gathering efforts, please contact Valerie 
Yingling, Paralegal at the National Federation of 
the Blind at
