Vispero collaborated with numerous organizations to put together a survey to understand how COVID-19 is impacting adults who are blind and visually impaired. The survey is designed to identify technology and service gaps, then eliminate barriers to lessen the impact of this pandemic. Reported challenges include:
- Access to food and supplies
- Social experiences
The COVID-19 crisis has brought about fast change. Social distancing, business closures, and the shift of employment and education to online environments have led to concerns about how those who are blind or visually impaired are affected. The information collected in the survey will help participating organizations find solutions to the challenges you are facing during this crisis.
The Flatten Inaccessibility Survey begins with a consent form that provides important information about what to expect. Upon agreeing, you will be taken to the instructions and a summary of the categories. The survey is open until Monday, April 13, 2020 at 8 AM EDT.
