Are You Passionate About Accessibility? Google Wants Your Feedback!

Greetings from the Accessibility Engineering Team here at Google! As part of our efforts to make Google products more accessible, we conduct research sessions with users with all types of disabilities. So far this year, we’ve conducted research sessions with users in the blind / low vision, deaf / hard of hearing and motor and cognitive impairment communities. Take a look at some of our current projects!

Feedback gathered during these sessions is invaluable in making Google products more accessible for everyone.

We conduct studies both in-person as well as remotely via video or phone. Selected participants will receive a thank you gift for their time in the form of a prepaid Visa gift card, or from a selection of brands including AMC, Cheesecake Factory, iTunes, Sephora, Toys ‘R Us and more.

Anyone with a disability / impairment who would like to take part in a study testing our products can sign up online. Once you have signed up you will be notified of upcoming research studies that are a match for your unique user profile. Feel free to forward this email to anyone with a disability who you feel may be interested!

Why not get your friends or family involved? Anyone without a disability who is also interested in taking part in our research can sign up online!
