A new Australian research project is asking people to take part in a survey about the use of video-on-demand sites by people with disabilities.

The study, Accessing Video on Demand: A study of disability and streaming television, is being funded by the Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN), and the researchers, Dr Mike Kent and Dr Katie Ellis of Curtin University, are “very keen to get the perspectives of people with different disabilities on how accessible the different services offered are”. The study is a very timely one as consumers are increasingly accessing video content online.

The online survey consists of 15 questions, and takes less than ten minutes to complete. Anyone 18 or older can participate.
