2013 SUNspot (Number 06) - Adults with Disabilities and Sources of Wireless Accessibility Information

Date of Publication: 
2013 August

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. Data collection is ongoing. 

This SUNspot addresses the question of which sources of information people with disabilities consult when choosing their wireless device.  Responses to this question are analyzed for:

  1. All respondents with a disability
  2. All respondents with a disability by disability type
  3. All respondents with a disability by age
