Individuals Needed to Test an Order Pickup Locker Kiosk

We are currently seeking 12 blind individuals to test the 
accessibility/usability of an order pickup locker kiosk. The testing 
should take approximately 30 to 45 minutes and will take place in New 
York City on April 3rd and 4th at a location TBA. No special skills 
are required.

The tester will receive an email on their smartphone with a pickup 
code that then needs to be entered into the order pickup locker 
kiosk. The tester will need to insert their headphones built into the 
locker and navigate the kiosk menus. Potential testers should have a 
basic knowledge of using text to speech software on their smartphone 
to read the email. Individuals will be paid $100 to offset any 
expenses incurred to participate.

To be considered for participation in this testing, and other 
opportunities, sign up as a member of our BUILD team at: 

About the Blind Users Innovating and Leading Design (BUILD) Program

Technologies are being developed every day that affect the way we all 
live, work, and play. Given the continuing and rapid proliferation of 
advanced technology, we need your help to ensure that this technology 
is accessible to blind people. The NFB is growing a database of blind 
users to test and evaluate the accessibility of websites, home-use 
medical devices, home appliances, fitness equipment, and other 
products and services.

Testers in our BUILD program will periodically receive requests to 
evaluate various websites, products, or services for usability and 
accessibility. We are currently seeking blind individuals to test the 
accessibility/usability of an order pickup locker kiosk in New York 
City, to provide feedback on the accessibility of Autonomous Vehicles 
in Arizona, and to evaluate the usability of our Accessibility 
Switchboard portal.

In order for us to obtain real-world experiences, we are seeking 
information from novices to experts. Although most are volunteer 
opportunities, some of these projects may offer compensation, 
premiums like gift cards, or product discounts. If you are interested 
in building the next generation of accessible products and services, 
please register to become a tester in our BUILD program by visiting
