Several weeks back I posted an inquiry asking for volunteers who might want to help in a Focus Group and Beta Testing for iPhone apps that are targeted specifically for low-vision and blind users. The response was quite healthy. Thanks to all who responded.
I created a forum for these discussions on Yahoo. However, during the process, we found that the polls on Yahoo to be not very accessible. Also, only a small subset of those expressing intreats logged int to participate. I came up that the login process of Yahoo was also difficult from an accessibility angle.
So, I have retooled to make the focus group more available to all who wish to participate. If you are still interesting in being in the Focus Group and/or the beta program, then please do the following:
1. Join the listserv for the focus group. You can do this in one of two ways:
a. Visit http://activeinfosys.com/mailman/listinfo/aisfocus_activeinfosys.com and supply your e-mail and an administration password, or
b. Send an e-mail to AISFocusfirstname.lastname@example.org with a subject of SUBSCRIBE. Note the hyphen in the mailbox name. This will add you to the list, and an administrative password will be automatically generated and e-mailed to you.
2. Complete a seven question survey. This survey provides demographic information as well as some starting point questions for our discussions. The survey is found at: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/WQGWPBT
Looking forward to it,
