Hello all,

 

Please take a few minutes to do this survey to help blind people gain better
access to banking and financial information.  Many of you will remember Dr.
Brian Wentz.  He worked with Jonathan Lazar on several projects.  Read below
for further information.

 

My name is Dr. Brian Wentz, and I am an Associate Professor of Management
Information Systems at Shippensburg University.  I along with Dr. June Pham,
an Associate Professor of Finance, and Kailee Tressler, an undergraduate
student at Shippensburg University, are conducting a web-based survey with
users who are blind to learn more about the impact that the accessibility of
banking and finance websites and apps can have on work and daily life. The
goal of this research is to compile data regarding the experiences and
problems that blind users encounter that are related to banking and finance
website and app accessibility. We are looking for blind, screen reader
users, not able to use screen magnification, who are 18 years of age or
older, and are users of banking and/or financial websites and/or apps to
assist us with this survey.

 

Survey participants will complete a web-based survey that will take
approximately 15 to 25 minutes to complete. The survey will ask you
questions regarding the experiences and problems that blind users encounter
that are related to banking and finance website and app accessibility.
Participation in this study is voluntary, and you are at liberty to withdraw
your consent to the experiment and discontinue participation at any time
without prejudice. Personal information or accounts will not be used at any
time. You will be entered in a drawing to win one of 4 $50 gift cards. The
drawing will take place in February 2016, and the winners will be notified
via email.

 

All information will remain strictly confidential, and once it is coded, the
original information will be stored in a locked location in my office at
Shippensburg University.

The following is two links that both take you to the web-based survey (one
is a shorter URL in case you have any difficulty with the longer URL from
Survey Gizmo): http://goo.gl/T80eOS or
