user studies that will help us develop these guidelines. The study
will only consist of one hour-long interview session. Please see below

Objective: study and develop guidelines for what features that make
mobile applications accessible.

Compensation: $15 Amazon gift card

Participation criteria: must be at least 18 years old, functionally
blind or low vision, and regularly use smartphones. All tasks should
be low exertion.

Location: Interview will take place over video chat (examples: Skype,
Google Hangout). Please be prepared to use a device other than your
smartphone for the video chat.

What to bring: Please have your smartphone available. You may be asked
to show the researchers how you interact with your phone, but may
decline to do so while still being eligible to participate. We will
not ask you to disclose any private content on your phone.
