Dear fellow Federationists:

Web Accessibility in Mind (WebAIM) has launched its seventh Screen 
Reader User Survey. This survey attempts to track many aspects of 
screen reader and browser usage by the blind around the world. The 
survey asks questions on which screen readers and browsers are used 
and users' proficiency with them, as well as questions about the use 
of headings and landmarks, the accessibility of social media sites, 
and users' feelings on web accessibility in general.

This survey is generally considered the closest thing to a definitive 
resource on screen reader and web accessibility data, and is widely 
referenced by web developers, accessibility professionals, and access 
technology manufacturers. It is vital that as many people as possible 
take this survey, since it will influence web accessibility for the 
next two years or until the next survey. We therefore hope that many 
of you will participate. The survey only takes ten to fifteen minutes 
to complete, and no information that will identify you personally is collected.

The survey is open until November 1. It is available at
