Please take a few minutes to do this survey. It will be closing at the end

Help Create a Nonvisually Accessible Maryland
Technology that is nonvisually accessible, which can be accessed and
operated using audio and Braille, creates opportunities for the blind to
live, work, and play as fully participating members of our communities. When
done correctly, building innovative, universally designed technologies is
simple, cost effective, and beneficial to blind and sighted users alike. The
National Federation of the Blind (NFB), in collaboration with Maryland
Department of Disabilities (MDOD), through Center of Excellence in Nonvisual
Access (CENA) to Education, Public Information, and Commerce, works to
ensure that websites, employment systems, educational technology, consumer
electronics, and other devices and systems are nonvisually accessible to the
blind citizens of Maryland.
We have developed an online accessibility survey to determine the greatest
areas of need, to provide a vehicle for discovery of future gaps, and to
create training programs and resources to fill the need for more significant
reform related to nonvisual accessibility. The survey is available online
Please assist us in our effort to create a nonvisually accessible Maryland
by completing the survey and by sharing this link with your network.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
