Hi Jalen,

I just took your survey, looks good! I wish you the best of luck with it and with your app development. 

You may want to post a link to your survey on Twitter with the #a11y hashtag. That's the tag usually used for accessibility items. You may reach more Braille and AT users that way than through this list, which is mostly for parents, who are generally not blind themselves. You may also want to write to Dave Andrews, the list administrator, and ask him to post your survey on other NFBnet lists. David.andrews at nfbnet.org.

Lastly, I remember your name from the NFB youth writing contest a few years back. I judged that year when you won in your category. I remember enjoying your story. Glad to see you're using your creativity to do other exciting and innovative things.

Subject: [blindkid] Restaurant Menu Accessibility Survey for Blind/Visually-impaired People of All Ages

My name is Jalen Ballard, and my mom, Michelle, is on this mailing list.
I am working on a free, cross-platform (Android and iOS) restaurant menu accessibility app for blind and visually-impaired users.  I am also planning to eventually produce Braille menus.
While the project is under development, I decided to create a survey so I can gather statistics and opinions from other blind/visually-impaired people about the issue of restaurant menu accessibility.
The survey is for all ages, and I am particularly looking for respondents who are Braille readers, large print readers, and users of the KNFB Reader application for iOS.
Here is the link to the survey: http://goo.gl/NUdnGG Please spread the word about this survey to anyone you know who may be interested in taking it.  I'm trying to get as many respondents as possible.

Have a nice day!

Thank you,
Jalen Ballard
