Cell Phone Camera Study

Ooo! Another study! I just received this yesterday. I think Steve should participate, because he takes awesome blind guy pictures. If I participate, I can show a good example of a blink failing at snapping a good picture. Just between the two of us, there’d be the two extremes haaha! Here are the details.

Hi, I am a computer science PhD student at the University of Washington. My research is on mobile device and camera interaction for blind and low-vision people. My goal is to find a usable way for blind people to use the camera on mainstream cell phones to gather certain information about their environment.

I have set up a repository for blind people to submit photos they have taken. You can go here to answer a few questions and submit any photos: http://abstract.cs.washington.edu/~cjayant/cameraRepos/upload_file.php I am interested in what issues blind people have while taking photos, and excited to see some of the results as I move forward in my research.

If you have not already completed my camera survey sent out a few months back, you can check it out here:

This should only take a few minutes to complete. All survey results and photos are anonymous and not tied to your identity.

If you have any questions, any comments on the form’s accessibility, or if you are interested in being a part of paid future interviews and studies, please send me an email! cjayant@cs.washington.edu

Please forward to any relevant mailing lists.

Thank you!
Chandrika Jayant

So, if you want to help this person out, get snappin’!
