To prepare for the assessments, first consider whether SEE-IT is suitable by examining the Scope below.
SEE-IT is intended for assessing flat artwork that is typically viewed at a hand-held distance, such as mobile phone screens and business cards. It identifies features that are difficult for many people to see quickly and easily. It thus helps to produce and justify minor improvements that can really make a difference for people with age-related long-sightedness, in a commercially relevant context (more detail).
The assessment is performed by mounting the artwork on a wall, and then simulating reduced visual ability by viewing the artwork from an increased distance. The assessor records the furthest distance at which they can see the artwork quickly and easily. The SEE-IT tool then calculates how many people would be unable to quickly and easily perceive the artwork, by comparing this distance with data from a survey (more detail).
In order to perform the assessments, you will need enough clear floorspace to roll a tape measure out to 3m away from a wall. Before going to this location, you will need to gather:
