Subject: [program-l] Survey about Barriers in CS Education

I am a graduate student in Computer Science and Engineering at the 
University of Washington. My group is interested in creating tools to 
help blind programmers. In order to better understand the challenges 
faced by them, I am conducting a survey on the barriers encountered 
as they learned to program. We would also like to invite some 
participants to take part in follow-up interviews to expound upon 
their answers and get more details about the barriers they have 
faced. You will be able to indicate if you would be willing to 
participate in the follow-up interviews at the end of the survey.

The survey is intended to be completed by adults who have completed 
an undergraduate degree in computer science or a related field and 
used a screen reader while completing that degree. If you meet the 
criteria, are one of the first 100 people to complete the survey 
answering at least half the questions, and provide your information, 
you will receive a $5 Amazon gift card. Please note, responses deemed 
to be spam will not receive compensation. Those who are interviewed 
as a follow up to the survey will receive a $30 Amazon gift card. The 
survey should take approximately 15 minutes. The follow-up interview 
should take approximately an hour.

Here is the link to the survey: 
https://catalyst.uw.edu/webq/survey/cmbaker/260612. The survey will 
close July 16.

Please feel free to forward this to anyone else you know who may be 
interested in participating in our study.
