The National Federation of the Blind is the largest and most influential membership organization of blind people in the United States. The NFB seeks to improve blind people’s lives through advocacy, education, research, technology, and programs encouraging independence and self-confidence. The NFB has affiliates and over seven hundred local chapters in all fifty states, plus Washington D.C. and Puerto Rico.
In January 2004 the NFB opened the National Federation of the Blind Jernigan Institute, the first research and training center in the United States for the blind led by the blind. To this day the NFB continues to conduct research in order to improve the quality of life for people across the country who are blind or visually impaired. One way that they are able to do this is through quantitative research methods such as surveys. Presently, the NFB is in need of survey participants.
The NFB is seeking information about accessibility barriers in the digital technology used by all students, teachers, and administrators in K-12 schools, universities, and colleges in the United States. If you are a student or a teacher, administrator, or parent of blind students, completing the survey from the NFB will aid the organization in learning more about educational technology that is either helping or hindering the learning process for blind students.
