Important survey for people with disabilities

| August 19, 2015

Access to technology is a key issue for anyone with a disability. The Wireless RERC (Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center) is conducting its annual survey to assess and evaluate technology needs and requests those with disabilities participate. The Wireless RERC is a leading voice in wireless technology innovation. Please see the information below and pass it on to any organizations or individuals you think might be interested.

New Survey of User Needs (SUN) for Wireless Technology just launched! Please participate!

The Wireless RERC’s research team is pleased to announce the launch of the 2015 Survey of User Needs (SUN) for Wireless Technologies. The SUN is our cornerstone survey of wireless technology use and usability by people with all types of disabilities. The survey mainly focuses on cellphones, but also includes questions about other types of devices like tablet computers such as an Apple iPad, Amazon Kindle Fire, Microsoft Surface, Samsung Galaxy Tab and other similar devices.

First launched in 2002, the SUN is the only national source of comprehensive information and insight into the wireless technology needs of people with disabilities. SUN data are used by the wireless industry, regulatory agencies, advocacy organizations and other researchers to inform their work. Over the years, more than 6000 people with disabilities have completed the SUN, and more than half have joined our national Consumer Advisory Network (CAN).

Please consider participating in the Survey of User Needs. You can participate on the web, on the phone, or we can send you a paper copy with a postage paid return envelope.

On the web, please go to the following addresses for English and Spanish versions of the questionnaire: English: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SUN-2015
