Classifieds: It's not too late to participate in the AT in the Workplace Survey!


The National Research & Training Center on Blindness & Low Vision recently launched its first survey for the Access Technology (AT) in the Workplace study. We are still recruiting people with blindness or low vision (age 21+) who are working at least 20 hours per week or are interested in working to be part of a 5-year study about AT use.
Why should you participate?
• You’ll help identify gaps in AT – what is needed but not available, which our technology company partners, including Microsoft, Google, OrCam, Vispero, Aira, and HumanWare are interested in!
• Findings will allow us to make recommendations for AT users, VR professionals, AT specialists, and employers.
• We’ll share study results directly with you and you’ll have the chance to participate in a community of study group members.
We want to know YOUR thoughts and experiences! Participation will involve completing multiple surveys to help us determine how AT use is changing over time. Some questions we will seek answers to are:
• What AT do you most commonly use?
• How do you decide whether to use a specific AT?
• What are your technology challenges?
• What tools do you need that aren’t currently available?
