Blind Volunteers Needed

[EDIT: 6th May 2008] This stage of the project is now complete, we're no longer looking for volunteers. Many thanks to those who participated.

---

For the next stage of our project we will conduct interviews with people who are blind or significantly visually impaired.

We'd like to take 30 minutes of your time for a voice chat to hear about your experiences of getting around in the real world, and any experiences you have of doing so in virtual worlds. The aim is to direct our further work developing interaction techniques for blind users in Second Life.

For more information please read the Explanatory Statement and Consent Form.

If you'd like to participate please send an email to Gareth White, G.White@sussex.ac.uk, confirming that you've read both of these documents and agree to the conditions listed in the consent form.
