Abstract
Wizard of Oz methodology is useful when conducting user studies of a system that is in early development. It is essential to be able to simulate part of the system and to collect feedback from potential users. Using a human to act as the system is one way to do this.



The Wizard of Oz tool presented here is called WozARd and it aims at offering a set of tools that help the test leader control the visual, tactile and auditive output that is presented to the test participant. Additionally, it is suitable for using in an augmented reality environment where images are overlaid on the phone's camera view or on glasses.



The main features that were identified as necessary include presentation of media such as... (More)

The Wizard of Oz tool presented here is called WozARd and it aims at offering a set of tools that help the test leader control the visual, tactile and auditive output that is presented to the test participant. Additionally, it is suitable for using in an augmented reality environment where images are overlaid on the phone's camera view or on glasses.



The main features that were identified as necessary include presentation of media such as images, video and sound, navigation and location based triggering, automatically taking photos, capability to log test results and visual feedback, and the integration of Sony SmartWatch for interaction possibilities.
