As a survey author (project investigator), it is your responsibility to verify your survey instrument for inclusiveness.
Plan for Alternative Access
A survey's content or delivery mode may require alternative access for a participant. You should plan ahead to have accessibility accommodations available. Examples include:
- Creating a copy of the survey in Microsoft Word or Plain Text format that can be used with assistive technologies like screen readers.
- Offering alternate methods of participation like email or phone call.
- Having staff available to provide accommodations like recording responses or reading questions and responses aloud.
Your alternative access accommodations should be described in the introductory text of the survey and/or in the survey distribution communications.
If you need additional guidance with the best ways to create an accessible survey, contact the IT Service Desk.
Ohio University strives to make its digital resources and services accessible to all visitors, including those with disabilities who may also be using assistive technology. If special steps are necessary in order to improve the accessibility of experiences for end users, those steps must be taken.
If you experience a barrier that affects your ability to access OHIO websites, videos, online forums, documents, or other information technology, please let us know.
