Research Survey on Online Accessibility and Usability of Commercial Websites

Date Posted: 07/31/2017

The online accessibility and usability of commercial websites affects people of all abilities, including those of us with a disability. While some companies have shown an interest in inclusive digital design to make their online experiences usable to the disability community, unfortunately most companies have not. Participating in this research will hopefully make a difference in the virtual world for those of us with a visual or print disability.

Blind and low vision participants answer opinion questions about policy issues regarding online accessibility of commercial websites, and then how they would react to two different online accessibility-related conditions. It should take about 10-15 minutes to complete. Some questions pertain directly to the ADA, so U.S. only please. Help ensure that the virtual world is as accessible and inclusive as it should be. Participation is completely voluntary and you can stop taking the survey at any time. For your participation, you will be entered into a drawing to win a $300 Amazon gift card.

This research has approval from the university institutional review board (IRB). The survey has been checked for usability by respected accessibility professionals in the industry.
