SxSW Accessibility Survey

31 Dec

As I stated here, I have the honor of presenting “How the iPad Can Help Save Accessibility” at SxSW 2012 in March. In preparation for this talk, I wanted to get a better idea of how people with different disabilities cope with the web in general, and how they deal with the mobile web.

If you could help me out, I’d greatly appreciate it.

Non-disabled: 20 entries
Vision disabilities: 29 entries
Hearing disabilities: 11 entries
Mobility disabilities: 8 entries

Also, if anyone is having trouble with the survey itself accessibility-wise, please leave a comment here or on the form. I tried using Wufoo because they seemed the most accessible of the survey services but some blank entries have me wondering.
