“How do YOU Read?” Survey

When you take this 15-30 minute survey, you will be asked things like:

  • Do you read with your ears, eyes, or fingers?
  • Do you read ebooks, audiobooks, braille, or large print?
  • What devices do you use to read? Computer, tablet, phone, DAISY, magnifier?

There is also space for you to tell us what you most want or need, given your unique circumstances.
