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.

Access Technology in the Workplace Study
We are recruiting people with blindness or low vision (age 21+) who are working or are interested in working to be part of a 5-year study about access technology (AT) use, particularly in the workplace. Some questions we will seek answers to are:

  *   What access technology do you most commonly use?
  *   How do you decide whether to use a specific access technology?
  *   What are your technology challenges?
  *   What tools do you need that aren't currently available?
We want to know YOUR thoughts and experiences! Participation will involve completing multiple surveys to help us determine how access technology use is changing over time.
Why participate?
*        You'll help identify gaps in access technology - what is needed but not available, which our technology company partners, including Microsoft, Google, OrCam, Vispero, and Aira are interested in!
*        Findings will allow us to make recommendations for access technology users, VR professionals, access technology specialists, and employers.
*        You'll receive a small gift card after completing each survey and we will share study results with you.
Want to have your voice heard and help us with our 5-year study?
