We created “SUNspot” to share some of the latest findings from ongoing data collection for our Survey of User Needs (SUN), our cornerstone survey on use and usability of wireless technology by people with disabilities. We launched the first version of the SUN in 2001. The current version (Version 4) was launched in September 2012. The data reported here are preliminary results.
We’re pleased to announce the availability of our latest edition of SUNspot, our series of research briefs on targeted issues and research questions based on the Survey of User Needs. This SUNspot focuses on the use of the internet on mobile phones (cellphones and smartphones) by people with disabilities. Responses to this question are analyzed for:
1. All respondents with a disability
2. All respondents with a disability by gross annual household income
3. All respondents with a disability by age
For comparison, data from the Pew Internet and American Life Project are presented for the general population overall, and also segmented by household income and age.
