This Weekend: Get Paid To Test BlindSquare

blindsquare logoDo you use the BlindSquare App to get around SF? Want to get paid to give feedback? Look no further.

The LightHouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired of San Francisco is working closely with the developer of BlindSquare, a popular navigational tool within the blindness community, to integrate a set of accessibility features (related to San Francisco Muni transit stops) into the BlindSquare application. We will be gathering feedback and data through a series of paid, in-person studies with current BlindSquare users.

We are targeting the weekend of July 18-19 to conduct the research. Scheduling is flexible, and sessions could take place mornings, afternoons, and evenings throughout the weekend. You should plan to devote approximately 2 hours to the study.  Space is limited. If you would like to participate, please answer the following survey questions and send your responses to Frank Welte at

1.     How would you describe your vision?

a.     No usable vision for navigation

b.     Some usable vision for navigation

2.     Do you own an iPhone?

3.     Do you use the BlindSquare app?

4.     How often do you use the app?

5.     How often do you travel independently outside of the home?

Thank you for your participation, and please spread the word!
