Dear All,

The DiaSpace project in Bremen is running a quick (15 minute) online
web study into how people give route instructions in dialogue. The
goal is that our findings will help us develop more responsive
wayfinding systems so that people who can't manually control their
wheelchairs can interact via dialogue instead. Another application
which we're working on is about helping elderly people find objects in
their home by describing where they are in an understandable way.

Please participate, and just as important, please forward this email
on to your friends! We're really having a hard time getting enough
participants who are native English speakers, as DiaSpace is based in
Germany. The only conditions for participation are that participants
be native or very fluent speakers of English and 18 years old or
older. Here's the link to the experiment:


The experiment only takes 15 minutes, and if you're using Windows
Vista, you'll need to run it on Firefox, as it won't work on Internet
Explorer for Vista. (It works on Internet Explorer for other operating
systems than Vista though.)

Thanks very much for your help, and please feel free to send any
questions about this experiment or research to;
Dr Kavita Thomas
