Volunteers for iPad Magnifier Testing

Help build a new electronic magnifier experience with your iPad! We’re seeking low vision users of magnifiers and iPads to comment on and test new and innovative ways to magnify text and other objects.

Location

Downtown Berkeley

What we do

Blindsight is an early stage R&D company focused on developing products and services for blind, low-vision and actively aging individuals. We are in the process of building a new and innovative iPad app focused on helping low-vision individuals be able to magnify text and other objects while on the go.

What it involves

The first step is for us to learn about your iPad and stationary magnifier usage habits through an “exploration” interview. If you choose to continue on with the process, the second step will involve a session where we will have mock-ups for testing, and the final step will involve distributing prototypes for you to test and play with in your daily environment. We will provide a small stipend for your effort.

The requirements

You should be a low-vision individual who is a regular iPad user and has at some point used a stationary magnifier.

Interested? Just send a quick summary of you with a description of why you’d like to take part on the pilot study to volunteers@blindsight.com and we’d love to talk to you!
