Participate in the Smith-Kettlewell wayfinding survey

A message from Josh Miele:


The Smith-Kettlewell Eye Research Institute (S-K), in collaboration with researchers at Accessible Design for the Blind and U.C. Santa Barbara, is conducting a survey of tools and techniques used by blind and visually-impaired people in their every-day lives. We want to know how you get around, how comfortable you feel in various situations, what other disabilities you have, and what tools and techniques you use in your daily travels. By participating in the S-K Wayfinding Survey, you will extend our knowledge of how real blind and visually-impaired people travel independently. You will also help to improve the independence of future travelers with visual disabilities by sharing your experience.

You can participate in the S-K Wayfinding survey on the web, by phone, or by TTY. The survey should take no more than 20 minutes to complete, and your responses will be completely confidential. We eagerly look forward to your participation and thank you in advance for your help.

To take the survey on the web or ask questions about it:

Take the survey by phone:
(415) 345-2013 — We will call you back.

Take the survey by TTY:
(415) 345-2290 — We will call you back.
