Thanks to all participants who already played our research game “MusVis”! The Award is therefore also for you! We can only find out the indicators and help people with dyslexia — if people participate in our study. Therefore a big big thank you to you!
Since around 2 years, we search for participants. During this time there have been fantastic people who helped with a lot of effort to find participants. Especially I want to thank
— Lena Klaus, teacher from Peter-Ustinov-Schule in Schleswig-Holstein
— Friederike Hansch, teacher at primary school Ofenerdiek
— Angelika Jobst, head of the library Ofenerdiek
— Peggy Stümpel, AncoraMentis
— Monika Batke, Hochschule Emden/Leer
Special thanks to Jeffrey P. Bigham from the Carnegie Mellon University for his contribution to the user study and Emilia Gomez from the Universitat Pompeu Fabra for her contribution on designing the music elements.
Next is the improvement of the approach and application as well as a large-scale study to confirm the pilot study results.
