Subject: [free-aria] [WebAIM] Screen reader survey

WebAIM is conducting a survey of screen reader users -

 Web accessibility experts often say something like,  "Screen reader
 users prefer…" followed by some accessibility recommendation. However,
 many of these recommendations are based on personal preference or
 conjecture - often from sighted users who only test with screen
 readers. The fact is that there is little data about screen reader
 usage to back up these recommendations.

 This survey will ask screen reader users about their usage and
 preferences. If you are a full-time, part-time, or even occasional
 screen reader user, please take a few minutes to complete the survey
 and provide us with a few details on your screen reader usage and
 preferences. We will be comparing results between those that rely on
 screen readers and those that primarily use them for evaluation and
 testing, so all screen reader users are invited to respond. Your
 feedback will help influence the accessibility techniques that web
 developers implement and that experts recommend. We'll be posting the
 survey results in a few months.

 Please post this announcement and/or the URL to other accessibility,
 disability, and assistive technology lists. More screen reader user
 responses will help solidify the recommendations made.
