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.
