The study will ask you to perform simple tasks that are similar to everyday
mobile device use, like speech dictation. We are also collecting basic

Study sessions will be conducted at our lab on the University of Maryland,
College Park campus. In rare circumstances, we may be able to arrange
in-person sessions at a location that is more convenient to you.
The study will take up to 90 minutes and you will be compensated $25 for your
time. Participants with visual impairments will also receive $30 toward
transportation costs if the study session is at a location you would not
normally visit, making the total compensation $55.
