Hi Cathy,

I hope this email finds you well. I would appreciate it if you could post
the below announcement to Kentucky affiliate lists that will reach members,
ages 15 to 30, in the Louisville area. This research has been approved by
our research advisory council. Please feel free to contact me if you have
any questions. Thank you very much!

Best regards,

Lou Ann

The below research participant solicitation is being provided for
informational purposes only. The National Federation of the Blind has no
involvement in this research, but we believe that it may contribute to our
research mission.

Zhizhen “Jerry” Tan from The New School is looking for volunteers to
participate in a research study focusing on improving the gaming experience
of the low vision/blind community and their ability to express their
creativity through accessibility design.

This study is being conducted by Zhizhen “Jerry” Tan, who is a graduate
student from MFA Design and Technology program at Parsons School of Design
of The New School, under the direction of Assistant Professor Harpreet

You must be at the ages of 15-30 with visual impairment to be in this
study. Your participation in this study is completely voluntary. If you
choose to take part in this study, you will have an interview with the
investigator. You will be asked 10-20 research questions and probably
participate in 1-2 activities in the interview.

What we want to learn from you is what are the things or experiences in
your daily life that you would pay attention to and think are interesting. We
also want to what creativity means to them and how you express their
creative thoughts.

Your participation will take about 60-90 minutes.

There are no anticipated risks in this study.

While you will not directly benefit from taking part in this research
study, we hope society and the blind/low vision community will benefit from
the knowledge gained.

If you want additional information about this study, please contact Zhizhen
“Jerry” Tan at tanz707 at newschool.edu 929-388-9568. A request for more
information does not obligate you to participate in this study.
