Inviting Persons who are Blind or have Low Vision for Survey for Learning a Physical Activity

Researchers from the University of Iowa Department of Computer Science are inviting people who identify as blind or low vision, are at least 18 years old, and have participated in athletic activities that involve swings to participate in an online survey to provide experiences when learning swings in athletic activities (e.g., forehand, or backhand swings). The survey will take no longer than 15 minutes. Our long-term goal is to develop technologies that provide coaching feedback on body movements, especially when performing these movements in Virtual Reality gaming. There is no compensation for this survey; however, upon completion you will have the option to be entered into a raffle to win $25. Raffle entrance is limited to the first 50 participants who opt in.

If you have questions, please contact Elizabeth Zak at elizabeth-zak at uiowa.edu<mailto:elizabeth-zak at uiowa.edu>.
