From: Suzanne Balik [mailto:spbalik at ncsu.edu] 

You are invited to participate in a study at North Carolina State University in which you will learn more about graphs, an important concept in many fields, and use two different computer programs to work with them.  Some examples of this type of graphs  with which you may be familiar include  family trees, concept maps, flow charts, and chemical molecules.  Our goal is to provide blind people with better access to graphs and a means to share them with sighted people.

To qualify for this study, you must be legally blind and be able to use a Windows computer with the JAWS screen reader. The study, which includes lunch, will take about 5 hours to complete. You will receive $100, if you complete the study. You will also be reimbursed for local travel costs other than personal vehicle.

To sign up for the study, please complete the form available at:

If you are under 18, please print the second page of the form which contains the informed consent, have your parent or guardian sign it giving you permission to participate in the study, and return it to me. You can scan the form and email it to me at spbalik at ncsu.edu, mail it to Suzanne Balik, Dept. of Computer Science, NC State University, Box 8206, Raleigh, NC 27695, or have someone deliver it to me.

Please feel free to contact me by phone at 919-515-3654 or email me at spbalik at ncsu.edu if you have any questions or would like more information about the study.

Right now we are trying to schedule participants for the following dates in March:

Saturday, March 16, Saturday, March 23, Thursday, March 28, Friday, March 29, Saturday, March 30

If none of those dates work for you, we can try for a time in April or May.

Thank you for your interest,
Suzanne Balik
