MS Accessibility Study Seeks Participants

Have you ever wanted to talk to someone behind the technology you use? Now’s your chance. Microsoft User Research is conducting end-user research and wants you to participate.

Microsoft User Research is seeking visually impaired and blind community members for upcoming accessibility studies. Studies will take place on Microsoft’s Redmond Campus with two hour time slots available starting in the beginning of October. Each participant will be offered a choice of new Microsoft software, hardware or games from a list of our most popular products.

To participate in a two hour study, email with “access” in the subject line. Include the information below.

1. Name/Phone:
2. Job Title/Company (if not working, that’s ok):
3. Age:
4. What applications and software do you use regularly?
5. Do you use and accessibility software (JAWs, Windows Eye, speech recognition, etc.)? If yes, which?
6. Please describe your visual impairment:
7. What operating system are you currently using? (Windows 8, Windows 7, Linux, etc.)

We’ll give you a call if you look like a match for this study. If you are selected and participate, you’ll get a choice of Microsoft software, hardware, or games as a thank you.
