Dear List Members,

Any solicitations to members of the National Federation of the Blind to participate in research studies need to be approved by the Jernigan Institute research advisory council (RAC) prior to posting. Anyone who receives a request to post a research announcement should forward that request to me. Our RAC will review the research to ensure that it fits within the research priorities of the NFB and that it has been reviewed and approved by an organizational internal review board. Please feel free to contact me if there are any questions. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Best regards,

Lou Ann

below for more information.

Study Introduction:

Our collaborative research study team (at University of California
Irvine and University of Maryland Baltimore County) is seeking
participants for the study examining experiences of indoor navigation
among individuals with disabilities or aged over 60 (UMBC IRB -
Y19RK12016).  We are seeking to interview individuals who identify
with both visual and physical disabilities to identify their
experiences when navigating or planning routes.  The findings would
help us better understand ways in which navigational technologies
could be better designed to match the needs of a wider selection of
users. The interviews would last 60 to 90 minutes, conducted over
phone or Skype.  A small giftcard is also available for your
participation. If you would be interested in participating, could you
please contact Dr. Ravi Kuber at (rkuber at umbc.edu) or Ali Abdolrahmani
(aliab1 at umbc.edu).
