The Carroll Center Seeking Cell Phone Testers

In this study of a new cell phone, we are seeking feedback from individuals who are totally blind or functionally blind – meaning that you must rely solely on the non-visual use of a screen reading software such as JAWS, NVDA, VoiceOver, or TalkBack in order to interact with devices and web content.  Some familiarity with a touch screen device such as a smart phone or tablet is essential, but you must be able to use that device without use of your vision in any way to qualify for participation in this study.

When it’s Happening

We will select a total of 12 qualified individuals for this study.  Each person must be willing to attend a 90-minute testing session scheduled between 9:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. during a 3-day period from March 10 to 13, 2015.  User testing sessions will be held at the Carroll Center for the Blind in Newton, MA; you are responsible for your own transportation to and from the center.


Each selected individual who completes their scheduled 90-minute testing session will receive $120 for their participation in this study.

If You Are Interested

Please send an email to David Kingsbury at that includes the following information:

  1. Your first and last name
  2. Your telephone number and best time to reach you
  3. Which screen reading software do you currently use for web browsing?
  4. Which smart phone or touch screen device are you familiar with?
  5. Confirm that you do not use any vision to interact with your device

All interested individuals who wish to be considered for this study must respond by email, but you may call David with any questions at 781-974-2001.
