Participant Recruitment for a VR Accessibility Research

Honored Guest

Hi Everyone, the Mad-Ability Lab at UW-Madison is conducting research to investigate how people with disabilities perceive and use avatars on Social VR platforms. We are recruiting participants who are Deaf or Hard of Hearing to join our study. 


We specify our study details below: 

  • Participants will be interviewed over zoom with researchers and reflect on their experiences with avatar on social VR platforms. 
  • We may also ask participants to share screens via zoom to demonstrate their avatars. 
  • The interview will last for approximately 1 hour, and we offer a compensation of $15/hour for participants. 

We are looking for participants who must: 

  1. Be at least 18 years old
  2. Be deaf or hard of hearing
  3. Have experience using social VR platforms and avatars (e.g. Rec Room, Horizon World)

If you are interested in participating in this study, please fill out this form: We will follow up with you if you are eligible to participate. If you need accommodations to participate, please contact Kexin Zhang at We look forward to hearing your avatar experiences on social VR! Please feel free to forward this information to anyone who might be interested.recruitment flyer.jpg
