> Dear Marci: 
> My name is Colleen Broughton, a Researcher with Northwest Insights, a market research services firm here in Seattle. 
> We reached out to National Federation for the Blind (Seattle Chapter) last year, while seeking feedback for an accessibility study, and are hoping you will consider being a resource again this year. As before, no sales are involved. We strictly want opinions, and qualified participants will receive a $200 gift card.
> The Study
> Northwest Insights is working with a client that is trying to make an electronic device and websites that will be more accessible and usable for people with visual, hearing, mobility impairments, and/or cognitive disabilities. To do this we are trying to find people that have specific disabilities to participate in a usability research session where they interact with a new device or website and give their opinions on how well it works and what parts need improvement.
> If you and/or members are interested in participating in a paid research session, here’s the link to share:

> Looking For
> Who: Men and women ages 18 and older | participants who have low-vision, or are legally blind, or blind
> What: A 90 minute or 2 hour one-on-one interview session
> When: Sessions to be scheduled in July and August 2015
> Honorarium: $200 Visa or Mastercard gift card, as a thank you for your time and opinions 
> Accommodations
> We will assist in making arrangements that will help us get people to complete the study; for instance, arranging transportation for some respondents if needed, or making sure a sign language interpreter is available for the session. This will be decided on case by case basis.
> Make A Difference
> We simply want opinions and feedback; There are no sales involved. All information remains confidential. Through market research, people are able to share their opinions directly with those who are able to affect change. The insight gained from feedback greatly contributes to improving the quality and usefulness of products and services.
> Your assistance, by sharing the study opportunity (and link) would be most appreciated.
> Kindest regards,
