Paid Racing Game Accessibility Research from Columbia University in New York


Researchers at Columbia University in New York City are testing a system to make racing games more accessible and enjoyable and are looking for your help.
Participants will play racing games using a Sony Playstation 4, a headset, and a controler using vibration feedback. The study can take place at the university or a location nearby to New York City.
Info on the study is below. Follow this link to fill out the form.

Researchers at Columbia University are working on new technologies that make it possible for people who are blind to play racing games using sound and controller vibrations.
Study participants will play several versions of a racing game using a PlayStation 4 controller, a standard pair of headphones, and our new sound- and vibration-based technologies. The study will last no longer than 90 minutes and participants will be paid $25 for participating. We can conduct the study at Columbia University or wherever would be easiest for the participant (we are happy to travel anywhere in the New York metropolitan area).
