In your reflection, address the following topics in 400-600 words (total):
Shinohara and Wobborck (2011) mention that an assistive technology can make people feel self-conscious in certain situations, and yet they want to be seen with these devices to show they are as capable as those without disabilities. When designing an assistive technology, what might you do in a user study or research study to ensure that the design fits in the social ecosystem?
Profita et al.'s paper studied people's acceptance of devices in different scenarios based on whether the user had a disability and whether the use of the technology was for assistive purposes. In Shinohara and Wobbrock, they mentioned that people do not always want to disclose their disability or their assistive technology. How might these results generalize to real-life situations, where the person has a hidden disability or uses headphones to hide verbal cues, for example?
Please remember to include 3-5 discussion questions.
