Curtin University is looking for participants to take part in a study it is conducting to help understand the potential benefits and challenges that the digital television switchover will bring for Australians with disabilities.

The first phase of the study, which is titled ‘Disability on Television: Access, Representation and Reception’, is a survey which asks 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 can be completed online, but is available in any format that would be accessible to people wishing to take part, including verbally. If you would like to receive a phone call email Senior Researcher Katie Ellis or call 08 9266 9130.

The survey is being conducted by researchers at Curtin University’s Internet Studies Department, and is funded by the Australian Research Council.
