My name is Dr. Jonathan Lazar, Assistant Professor in the Department of
Computer and Information Sciences and the Center for Applied Information
Technology at Towson University in Towson, MD. As part of my continuing
research concerning web accessibility*, I have developed the attached
survey to determine the attitudes of webmasters toward users with
disabilities. The research team also includes Professor Alfreda
Dudley-Sponaugle, Computer and Information Sciences and Ms. Kisha-Dawn
Greenidge, Graduate Student in the Center for Applied Information
Technology at Towson University.
*Web accessibility - When applied to informational systems, accessibility
means that an information system is flexible enough to be utilized by
someone using alternative input and/or output methods.
