ASU graduate student asks for participation in survey

My name is Banel Bucknor and I am a graduate student at ASU School of Design. I am conducting a survey on the views of the accessibility on the current City of Tempe website.

The project adapts the City of Tempe current website (http://www.tempe.gov/) as a case study on how web accessibility is important to its’ audience especially the 65 and older users. The survey takes about 5 minutes and at the end there is an option for further participation in the research. This only applies to the 65 and older users.
