The Human-Centered Computing Program at UMBC is conducting research  to
evaluate new access technologies for blind and visually impaired people.

To that end, we are recruiting participants for 2 research studies. In
these studies, you will test out a new computing device that uses gestures
to improve the accessibility of a mobile device. The study may take place
at our research lab on the UMBC campus in Catonsville, MD, or at a location
of your choosing, if you are unable to come to UMBC.

For the current study, we are seeking blind and visually impaired
participants who have experience using a screen reader. You must be 18
years or older. You must also have the physical dexterity needed to use a
computer for approximately 2 hours.

Each study will take between 1 and 2 hours. You will receive $20 per hour
for your time. We can also cover transportation costs to our research lab.

If you are interested in participating in this research or have further
questions, please contact Dr. Shaun Kane by phone at 206-923-8306 or by
email at skane at umbc.edu. Please indicate whether you are available to
participate in 1 or 2 study sessions, and whether you would be able to
visit the UMBC campus in Catonsville, MD. Please note that we cannot
guarantee the confidentiality of email.
