Actually we are looking mainly for Android phone users now. However, I do not have a list with all Android phones suitable for this study. I would need to check for each model separately whether they are suitable or not.

before everyone gets too excited, what they haven't bothered to say, is they
are only looking for HTC desire or IPhone users. so if you don't use one of
these, don't bother.

Hello,

My name is Maria, and I work for System Concepts, which is a consultancy
specialising in the usability and accessibility of products and websites.
We routinely carry out user-testing, to ensure that these products can be
used and enjoyed by all potential users, including those with a specific
ability need.  If you require more information about us, please visit our
website on http://www.system-concepts.com/.

We are planning to conduct a round of accessibility testing soon and are
looking for visually impaired people who would like to take part. The
testing will be conducted in London, Paddington.  To show our appreciation
for your valuable insights, we will provide you with £70, as a gift and to
cover your transport costs.

If you decide to participate, we will ask you to help us evaluate the
accessibility of a website on your mobile phone, by attempting a number of
tasks.  There are no right or wrong answers for these tasks and we simply
want to know what you think about the website.  We would like to audio and
video record your session, but rest assured that we will not release your
personal details to anyone and the video will not be seen by anyone outside
the design team.   Before we can invite you, we need to find out a few
things to make sure you match the criteria we are hoping to test.  Please
answer the following questions and send your responses to me.

1.       What mobile phone do you use?  How long has it been your primary
phone?

2.       Do you use a screen reader on your mobile phone? If yes, which one?

3.       How do you type in text on your mobile phone? Do you use the phone
keyboard, the touch screen keyboard or an external keyboard?

4.       Do you access the internet on your phone to research and buy
products or services?

The testing session will take place on the following dates and times:

                                                                Session 1
Session 2
Thursday 18th August                     14:30- 16:00
Friday 19th August                           14:30- 16:00
16:15-17:45
Monday 22nd August                      14:30- 16:00
16:15-17:45

If you are interested in participating in this study or have any questions,
please e-mail me and I will provide you with further details.  Also, please
feel free to pass this message on to anyone else who you think might like to
participate.  I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Kind regards,

Maria
