The below research participant solicitation is being provided for 
informational purposes only. The National Federation of the Blind has 
no involvement in this research, but we believe that it may 
contribute to our research mission.

Museum Experience Survey

Cheryl Fogle-Hatch, Ph.D. (an independent archaeologist and museum 
professional) and Don Winiecki, Ed.D., Ph.D. (a professor at Boise 
State University) are conducting survey research to identify 
experiences of blind and visually-impaired individuals at museums.

If you choose to complete the survey it will take you about 15 to 20 
minutes. More information about the survey and the research is included below.

Survey URL: 


The survey is intended for individuals who are (a) 18-years old or 
older, (b) blind or visually-impaired, and (c) who have visited one 
or more museums in the past.

Possible Benefits

Results of this research will be reported at academic and 
professional conferences and in journal publications. Findings and 
conclusions of the research will enable the researchers to provide 
information and advice that can improve the experience of blind and 
visually-impaired persons in museums.

Risks and Discomforts

This study involves no foreseeable serious risks. We ask that you try 
to answer all questions; however, if there are any items that make 
you uncomfortable or that you would prefer to skip, please leave the 
answer blank.

Protection of Privacy and Confidentiality

The survey is designed so that your responses are anonymous. However, 
for this research project, the researchers are requesting demographic 
information. Due to the make-up of the population of blind and 
visually-impaired persons in certain areas, the combined answers to 
these questions may make a person identifiable. The researchers will 
make every effort to protect your confidentiality. However, if you 
are uncomfortable answering any of these questions, you should skip them.

Choosing to Be in the Study

You do not have to be in this study. Participation is voluntary. You 
may choose not to take part and you may choose to stop taking part at 
any time without penalty.
