Seeking people who use assistive tech for paid usability studies

Anthro-Tech, a user-centered design, usability research and training firm based in Seattle & Olympia, is currently looking for participants for a study of a new Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT) website. The study will take place in the next couple of weeks. And, I’m also looking to build relationships to get the word out about future opportunities.

In a typical study,

  • participants join a facilitated session where they review a website, try to do some tasks, and give feedback on their experience
  • sessions are usually 1 – 1½ hours long
  • participants get $100-150 in exchange for their time
  • they work to include people with a range of expertise and comfort with technology
  • most of their current studies are run remotely using Zoom
  • they are conscious of privacy and don’t share participants’ personal information without explicit consent
