Abstract

The Global Public Inclusive Infrastructure auto-personalization project aims to create a system
that allows people to easily discover and set up assistive technology and other computer accommodations
and features to meet their individual needs and preferences. As a first trial, a prototype of the autopersonalization
system was tested with 11 participants at an American Job Center (AJC). Participants
were all customers at the AJC. They used near-field communication cards to set up the system in different
ways and tried job search-related tasks of their own choosing. Participants were all positive about their
use of the auto-personalization system—all reported they would like to use the system again at the AJC
and most listed other places they would like to be able to use it. Following this study, two computers with
the auto-personalization system installed were placed at the AJC for continued customer use.
