How do you use your mobile device?

Neil Squire is conducting a survey on mobile devices and accessibility – and they need your feedback!

What’s the best way to make mobile devices accessible for everyone?

There are many different mobile devices. These include smartphones, cellphones, tablets and other devices. People with disabilities may use certain features on mobile devices to do some tasks. Here are some examples.

  • Pushing the power button on or off
  • Making a phone call
  • Entering a password
  • Reading a text message or email
  • Writing a text message or email
  • Sending a text message or email
  • Making a video call
  • Taking a picture

But sometimes these features change from one model to the next one. The purpose of this survey is to find out what features of mobile devices help people with disabilities. We want to know how you want to do tasks on your mobile device. We want to know what features you rely on and expect. We want to know what features help your mobile device work for you. Your answers are important to us. Please try to answer all parts of the survey. You can complete the survey yourself. Or you can have an assistant or caregiver fill it out for you. Your personal information will be kept safe. It will not be sold. It will only be used for research about this survey. Your personal information will be kept private and confidential.

This survey is now closed. Thank you to all who participated.
