ACPL will use the application to collect information about users who have a visual or reading impairment, including individuals who are unable to read conventional printed material because of blindness, low-vision, a literacy issue, or a physical impairment that makes it difficult to hold a book or turn pages such as stroke, Parkinson’s or arthritis.

The project will provide an easy access interface for users to provide demographic information and other notes such as service type and customer satisfaction. Behind the scenes, the application will allow ACPL to retrieve, store, and analyze user profiles and other survey data through Web browsers and mobile devices.
