Participants Needed for Testing a New Math Education Software Tool 
for the Blind

All participants will receive $20 in iTunes gift cards for their 
time.  gh, LLC (makers of the ReadHear e-book reader software) and 
the University of Alabama in Huntsville are developing a new software 
program to enable improved math education (particularly in advanced 
subjects like algebra) for blind and visually impaired students. They 
are looking for volunteers to participate in one of eight testing 
sessions on Tuesday July 2, from 1:00-5:00 p.m., to help evaluate and 
refine the software's design.

Thirty-two participant slots are available (four slots every thirty 
minutes, starting from 1:00-4:30 p.m.). Appointments are recommended. 
Walk-up time slots may be available on a limited basis.  All 
participants will receive a $20 iTunes gift card as thanks for their 
time and assistance.

Participants must have recent experience with Windows, screen-reader 
software, and high school algebra. Current high school (8th-12th 
grades) or college students are preferred.

During the thirty-minute testing session, participants will be 
introduced to the software, instructed in its use, and then provided 
with a series of basic algebra-related exercises to determine the 
effectiveness and efficiency of the software's interface. At the end 
of the session, participants will be able to give feedback and 
suggestions about the software and receive their gift cards.
