Researchers at the University of Waterloo are seeking participants for a two-session study about the accessibility of VR applications. This study will take place in two sessions:

  1. Demonstrations of common VR applications alongside semi-structured interviews; and
  2. Interactive feedback sessions for custom-made VR input techniques.

Selected participants must self-identify as having a motor limitation or disability. No prior experience with VR or VR equipment is necessary. Participants will be compensated $50 per one-hour session.

This study has been reviewed and received ethics clearance through a University of Waterloo Research Ethics Committee ORE# 45452.

My name is Johann Wentzel, and I’m a PhD candidate at the University of Waterloo. I’m currently living in Calgary while I finish the rest of my PhD remotely.

My research explores making VR more accessible for people with motor disabilities, and naturally this involves cooperating and collaborating with disability-centric communities.
