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.

Researchers from the University of Iowa Department of Computer Science are inviting people who identify as blind or low vision, and at least 18-years old, to participate in an online survey to rate whether written descriptions of artwork provided by sighted people are accessible to people who are blind or have low vision. This survey will take no longer than 30 minutes. Our long-term goal is to develop technologies to help improve art exploration for people who are blind or have low vision. You will be paid $5 in the form of an Amazon gift card for participating. Please do not post about this survey on social media. Due to funding constraints, we are limited to 50 survey respondents.

If you have questions, please contact Kyle Rector at kyle-rector at uiowa.edu<mailto:kyle-rector at uiowa.edu> or 503-449-1736.
