Designing an accessible website for a research partnership

study logo - survey
Researcher(s): Dr. Ben Mortenson

Our MAP research partnership is working to create, test, and implement solutions to improve mobility, access, and participation among Canadians with mobility issues. To support community engagement and share our findings, we would like to create a website. The purpose of this study is to explore perspectives regarding the development of a website that is inclusive and accessible for the broader community of people with disabilities.

Participants will take part in a formal, semi-structured interview of 30-60 minutes via Zoom. Research staff will lead the interviews and ask questions about participants’ perspectives regarding accessible website design (e.g., examples of accessible websites, accessibility features).

Why should you participate in this study?

Your participation will inform how we can design a MAP website that is useful, inclusive, and accessible for project participants and the broader community.
