Survey on the use of smartphones and tablets: Are they replacing traditional assistive devices for the blind or partially sighted?

Individuals who are blind or who have low vision are invited to participate in a new, international study by the University of Montreal and the Munich University of Applied Sciences that explores the use of mainstream smartphone and tablet computers among users with vision loss.

The aim of this study is to better understand which mainstream devices (smartphone or tablet computers, installable apps and accessibility features) are being used by individuals with vision loss, and what factors impact the decision to use a specific device for a particular task. Participation involves the completion of a confidential, online survey that should take no more than 30-45 minutes of your time.
