Disability on Television: Access, Representation and Reception

You are invited to participate in a study being conducted by researchers in the Internet Studies Department at Curtin University and funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC). The purpose of this research is to help us understand potential benefits and challenges of the digital television switchover for Australians with disabilities. This research involves a number of phases across several years. The first phase is an online survey which is now open.   https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/Disabilityandtelevision

The survey will help us understand what Australians with disabilities think about the representation of disability in television news and entertainment programs but also the types of accessibility options that will enable greater access to this medium for people with disabilities.

The Survey

The Survey asks questions about

The way you access television
What you think about the representation of disability on television
Your use of online media
Your participation in the media

The survey takes about 30 minutes to complete. Participation in this project is completely voluntary. You can refuse to answer any question and you can stop participation at any time.

The survey is available in any format that would be most accessible to you, including verbally. If you would like to be called, please contact Senior Researcher Katie Ellis at Katie.ellis@curtin.edu.au.
