More Participants Sought for Survey on Captioned Telephone Use

February 28, 2013 in Advocacy & Access, Captioning / Relay, Community Events, Community News

ADDITIONAL PARTICIPANTS WANTED FOR A BRIEF ONLINE SURVEY
ABOUT CAPTIONED TELEPHONE USE

An online survey is being conducted by the Rehabilitation Engineering Research Center on Telecommunications Access at Gallaudet University to learn about the experiences of adults who are deaf, hard of hearing, or have hearing loss, and who use Captioned Telephone Services. The goal of the survey is to help inform the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) about the use of captioned telephones.

The RERC on Telecommunications Access at Gallaudet University would like to thank all the individuals who have already taken its Captioned Telephone Service Survey.  Your responses are very important and will be shared with the FCC once they are analyzed.  Anyone who has not yet taken the survey and meets the participation criteria is encouraged to do so.

The survey will remain open through Friday, March 8, 2013.
Individuals interested in participating:

1.    must be 18 years of age or older, and
2.    must be deaf, hard of hearing, or have a hearing loss.

The study takes approximately 10 minutes. You will be asked questions about your hearing loss, your hearing device use, the captioned telephone service and equipment you use for personal and work related calls, and your experience using this type of telephone and service.

If you would like to participate in this online survey, please go to http://tap.gallaudet.edu/CTSSurvey/

This study has been approved by the Gallaudet University Institutional Review Board.
