Hi all,

                 My name is Arielle Silverman, and I am seeking your 
help with a research project. The main purpose of this project is to 
develop a database of blind individuals who are interested in 
providing feedback on new assistive technologies. This project is 
sponsored by Arizona State University's Center for Cognitive 
Ubiquitous Computing (CUBC) which designs haptic technologies to 
assist people who are blind and visually impaired. We need to hear 
from the blind community about the most appropriate applications of 
this technology. By signing up to join the database, you will be able 
to comment on the real assistive technology needs of the blind 
community, evaluate their ideas for new haptic technologies, and 
participate in user studies.

Adults who are 18 years or older and who are blind or visually 
impaired are eligible to participate. The study involves a 10-minute 
survey asking about your demographics and assistive technology use. 
This will help us send you invitations to future studies for which you qualify.

You will have the chance to enter into a raffle drawing where three 
individuals will each win a $100 gift card if you decide to complete 
the survey.

This study has been approved by the Institutional Review Board at 
Arizona State University.
