Running in partnership with Lucasfilm ILMxLAB, the Disability Visibility Project – an online community dedicated to recording, amplifying, and sharing disability stories and culture – is currently running an online survey for people with disabilities, focused on virtual reality (VR).
In the survey Disability Visibility Project covers a range of topics which include: user experiences of VR, accessibility issues that users have with VR and any thoughts or ideas respondents may have relating to VR for people with disabilities. As the survey is partnered with Lucasfilm there are some questions refering to the recent VR experience Trials on Tatooine for those that have tried the experience, although knowledge of the title isn’t required to participate in the questionnaire.
The online survey can be found here, and the deadline for respondents is 31st January 2017. The results of the survey will be presented and shared with the VR developer community at the Virtual Reality Developers Conference 2017 (VRDC) during February in San Francisco, California by the team from ILMxLAB.
The Disability Visibility Project was founded in 2014 by Alice Wong in San Francisco. Wong, who serves as Project Coordinator along with several volunteers, is a Staff Research Associate for the Community Living Policy Center, a Rehabilitation Research and Training Center funded by the National Institute on Disability, Independent Living and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) and the Administration for Community Living.
