moderated Re: Census survey

I was able to complete the census questionnaire online using Google Chrome with JAWS 2019 and Windows 7.  In order to access the questionnaire site, you must log in using the 12 character alphanumeric ID code that is printed on the notification you received in the mail.  A few members of another list reported trouble completing the questionnaire online using IE.  If you experience trouble completing the questionnaire online, call 844-330-2020 and explain that you are blind and would like to complete the questionnaire over the phone to avoid a visit from a census taker. Just be prepared for long wait times or disconnects because they are probably seriously shorthanded right now due to the national health crisis.  Everything seems to be in a state of confusion because nobody knows what to expect.  It may be difficult to impossible for the census bureau to obtainan accurate census count under the current circumstances.   Let's all try to stay safe and healthy.

At the top, it asks screen reader users to use the latest version of Internet Explorer and JAWS.  I wonder how secure IE is now.

Any thoughts?
