ACB and Google Conduct Survey to Better Understand Computer Usage and Assistive Technology Patterns in the Blind Community

The American Council of the Blind (ACB) recently announced it will be working with Google Inc. to survey blind, visually impaired, and deaf-blind individuals to better understand how they use computers and assistive technology to access information.

The survey, developed jointly by Google and the American Council of the Blind, will gather data about technology use and needs in the blind community. Respondents will be able to complete the survey by either telephone or web. Survey data will be used to better understand how blind users interact with the web, which assistive technologies they find most useful, and how they make decisions about whether to switch or upgrade tools.

The survey, which will run through mid-September, is available immediately at Individuals who want to take the survey by telephone, please call 347-772-8355.
