While you attend Washington Seminar on Monday, January 25, be sure to 
stop by the NFB Legal Department's survey table in the hotel lobby. 
In an effort to gather critical accessibility information from 
members, the Legal Department will be conducting member surveys on 
the following topics:
    * Redbox
        * We are seeking members who have tried to use or would like 
to use Redbox video and video game rental kiosks.
    * Social Security Kiosks and Forms
        * We are gathering information regarding inaccessible field 
office kiosks or online forms.
    * Online Banking
        * We are gathering information pertaining to the 
accessibility of online-only banks.
    * Electronic Health Records
        * We are seeking information from employees and students 
required to use electronic health record systems on the job or for 
school purposes.
    * Employment
        * 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.
    * Common Core State Standard Assessments
        * We are seeking information regarding K-12 students who 
completed a 2015 PARCC or Smarter Balanced assessment or will be 
taking a 2016 PARCC or Smarter Balanced assessment.
    * Technology in Higher Education
        * We are gathering information regarding inaccessible 
technology and discriminatory practices and feedback on the
