Microsoft has posted a survey to gauge opinions of blind users of Twitter and how they interact with posted images. As explained on the survey page, "This survey is part of a Microsoft Research project that aims to improve the social media usage experiences of people who are blind by gathering data about the extent to which people who are blind use various social media, the purposes for which they use it, and the challenges they face in participating in this increasingly important aspect of modern social life." The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete with roughly 25 questions total. Upon completion, $1 will be donated to one of several blindness organizations. The survey is available through March 31 or until 1,000 responses have been received. Check the source link to take the survey.
Update: The survey has now closed.
I first attempted to take the survey while using the SAMNet Socializer. I made it through the first six questions. I clicked the Next button, but the screen did not change. I then tried to resume the survey using JAWS, The Qube, and Internet Explorer. Survey Gizmo said I had already completed the survey. I disagree.
