Subject: [Doitsem] University of Washington Paid Study Recruitment- Blind and Low-Vision Participants Needed


My name is Chandrika Jayant. I am a Ph.D. candidate in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Washington working with Professor Richard Ladner. I am studying ways to improve the accessibility and usability of mobile device cameras, particularly for people who are blind. To this end, we are looking for subjects to participate in our study.

This study will ask you to locate some objects using a standard camera phone and our new camera software. I will also be testing out a specific portrait-taking camera application that we tested out last year- we have added last year's participants' suggestions into this iteration. If you already participated last year, please feel free to come back for this different yet related study. The study will take place at the beginning of April at our lab on the University of Washington campus in Seattle.

If you are interested in participating in my study, "Blind Photography and Non-Visual Camera Interactions on Mainstream Mobile Devices" please contact me directly at: 206-300-2167 (you can leave a message with your name and phone number if I do not respond) or cjayant at cs.washington.edu<mailto:cjayant at cs.washington.edu> (Please note that I cannot guarantee the confidentiality of email.)

We are narrowing our research to people with the following qualities:

*        18 years old or older

*        Blind or low-vision

*        Hearing

We encourage people of all genders, ethnicities, and familiarity levels with computers to participate. Realize that it is only the technology we are testing, not you!

You will be paid $50 for your time. The study will take approximately 60-90 minutes.

Feel free to take a look at my website to find out more about my research program:

If you have never filled out my camera survey, please take a moment and do so now, even if you do not want to participate in the full-fledged study, or if you are not in Seattle. http://bit.ly/h5Hbls
