VOConline would like to invite you to apply to a
computer usability study. We are looking for a wide
range of people to participate, from novices to
experienced computer users. All you need to do is just
be willing to give us your feedback on your experience
with this test.
If selected, you will be sent everything you need to complete the tasks free of charge. You will have the opportunity to use PC with the Vista OS as your primary computer for an 8-week time period. This test is about
personal computer software for next-generation PC hardware products. At this point we anticipate that this experience program will run from early October 2007 to early December 2007.
Your responsibility will be to use the product as your primary computer for the 8-week period. You be provided with a series of online To Do tasks and
Surveys over the 8-week period.
To participate, you must be available to test the product from early October 2007 through early December 2007. (Web registration required, see below.) If you are accepted, you will be notified within a couple of
weeks. Otherwise, we will keep your information for future programs.
We are looking for evaluators who can do the following:
* Use this computer as their primary computer for the evaluation period. You may install your own software and data on this computer to encourage you to use it as your primary home computer.
* Other family members may use this computer as well, as long as you are the primary person to fill out the To-Doís and Surveys.
* Use this computer at least once a day, if not more.
* Make clear decisions on what you like or donít like about aspects of the system.
During the testing period we request and encourage you to report to any and all problems, issues, suggestions, comments, ideas and/or questions regarding the product. You will be able to easily communicate with us through your personal VOConline Feedback Center.
There are specific areas of interest where your feedback will be particularly valuable. These include:
* Product ease of use
* Customer satisfaction with aspects of the system
* Product installation issues
* Error messages/defects
Our intention is to leave the product at your home for the entire evaluation period. In certain situations, however, it may be necessary to remove the unit early. You will not incur any shipping costs.
