Interested in your project, is this more focusing on users who use alternative keyboard inputs due to a physical disability or are you also interested in people who use Braille Displays?

Subject: Facebook project - looking for alternative input device users

Hello everybody,

Knowbility, Inc.<http://www.knowbility.org/> is currently working on an accessibility project with Facebook.

We need test participants who use alternative input devices - switches, head sticks, sip and puff, head pointers, and other such devices. Test participants will work with Chris Langston of Facebook, doing interviews remotely from home. Participants will be paid $50 for an hour of remote testing, more if it takes longer.

If you know Alt Input device users who would like be part of this project, please contact me, Marine Menier, directly - marine@knowbility.org<mailto:marine@knowbility.org> or at 512-527-3138 ext 106<tel:512-527-3138%20ext%20103>.

Or...test participants can sign up to participate at www.access-works.knowbility.org<http://www.access-works.knowbility.org/>. To register, click "get started", then click "sign up to be a tester" and use promo code ACCESSWORKS.

Here’s what one of our testers has to say about her experience with AccessWorks:

“By joining AccessWorks team, I am helping organizations make websites more useful for others who face the same barriers than me. I highly recommend it for people who have disabilities. It does not cost anything and makes you feel useful!”

Thanks for your help! If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.

Have a good day,
