The NIDRR-funded Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center for Wireless Technologies (Wireless RERC) is conducting two surveys on how people with disabilities use wireless technology. The first is “User Needs“. This is a general survey on the use and usability of wireless technologies. The second, “Emergency Communications,” focuses on contacting emergency response services (i.e. fire and rescue, ambulance, etc.) during a personal emergency; and receiving alerts during public emergencies, like severe weather, forest fires, and so on.
The results of the surveys will be used to inform government regulators and the wireless industry about the wireless needs and wants of people with disabilities. You can help regulators and engineers need to be aware of your views and experiences, and help make technology easier for people with disabilities to use.
For questions or more information please contact John Morris, PhD, Research Scientist at 404/367-1348 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you require an alternative format of the survey (i.e. phone, paper, etc.), have any questions or problems with the survey, please contact the Wireless RERC at 800/582-6360, 404/367-1348 or by email.
