Take and Share our Survey of User Needs (SUN)
The SUN is the Wireless RERC's cornerstone survey on wireless technology use by people with disabilities. It has been completed by over 7,500 consumers with disabilities since it was first launched in 2001.
This latest survey represents the 6th version, as the SUN is updated periodically in response to changes in technology. In addition to questions about cell phone and tablet use, this latest version collects information about wearables, "smart" home technologies, and other next-generation wirelessly connected devices. User responses will help designers and engineers make new wireless devices and services for people with disabilities. Data from the SUN also provides important information to the wireless industry, government regulators, and other researchers to help them make wireless technology more accessible and more useful to people with all types of disabilities.
If you have a disability and have not already taken it, please consider taking this survey. If you know someone who has a disability, please forward the survey to them.
