Shiri Azenkot on Accessible Virtual Realities

"Our guest today is serious and Gut. She's an assistant professor of information science at the Jakobsen Technion Cornell Institute at Cornell Tech her research focuses on accessible technology and recently she. We started looking more closely at accessibility. In virtual augmented and mixed realities I sat down with her in November at Cornell attack and I began by asking her what brought her to this area research and why accessibility was important to her. I have I have always had a connection with accessibility. I have a disability myself. have low vision. And that's a visual impairment. That can't be fully corrected with eyeglasses glasses or contact lenses so it means that I have difficulty seeing but I still have a lot of vision. I'm not blind and growing up. I was always given all of these. Various assistive technologies and I always hated them I advocates. They were always designed in a way that was incredibly unattractive active to look like medical devices. They were different than what my friends were using. They were really expensive. You know there was no choice involved. They couldn't pick out what was desirable to me and I was stigmatizing to be perfectly honest so I didn't want anything to do with assistive technology. I didn't want anything to do with low vision with disability with blindness I was I was totally anti this whole thing altogether and I went to college legit. I studied computer science and then I became a software developer and at some point I started to wonder what was next for me. I felt like what I was doing. Really didn't have the kind of impact on the world that made me happy that made me feel fulfilled so I started getting interested. Did in going back to Grad School in computer science and doing more research and I came across accessibility as a research area and the work that I found it really really resonated with me because these researchers were saying that they were describing the same things that I had experienced. They were saying that current assistive technologies were not designed in way that was usable that provided a good user experience. They stigmatized the user. Hit me suddenly that this this is not necessarily okay. The way things had to be it clicked all of a sudden you now look more specifically at extended reality technologies so also known as X.. Art Technologies the incumbents things. Virtual augmented mixed realities. Can you just for the people who would not know exactly what these mean. Can you just give us us a sort of an overview of what that encompasses and what that means. Sure so ex are is one of many terms for this new New Paradigm of computing. So it's basically the idea that we have virtual elements that are embedded in the real world so a lot of people have probably seen pokemon go though. This is An augmented reality applications. So you have these pokemon which are virtual right and you you find them embedded or are located in the real world around you so this is one form of czar and then if you take this to the extreme you can yourself can be completely really immersed in a virtual world so you can put on an Oculus or some other kind of Vr headset and feel like you are more or less uh in another world. So what's the difference. Exactly between augmented a virtual and mixed reality so there are different definitions. One that I like to use. It says that makes reality. Is this entire continuum and on one end we have reality. And all the way on the other end we have Virtual tool reality with virtual reality like I was just describing VR. You're wearing a headset for example. And you're immersed in this virtual world different world and anywhere in between only part of your environment has virtual elements. It could be something small like Pokemon that appears or or we you and I could be sitting in a virtual room but I could still see your face so your faces real but then everything else you have. An avatar body could be virtual rule so that would be much closer on that continuum to the virtual reality end of it. And and so you. You believe that. These technology has a great potential for accessibility enhancing accessibility to people with different types of disabilities. Why is that? Why does that? Specific technology hold so much promise in that field. Well it's two things really so i. I believe that this technology is becoming mainstream. So what I mean by that. Is that right now. You know we typically use our phones throughout the day we typically sit in front of our computers. You know a lot of us might have a fitbit or some other device that's honest a wearable device and what what we see now. There's there's been a ton of research on virtual and augmented reality throughout the last few decades. But now it's starting to gain some traction action and it's becoming mainstream. This is coming to everyone to consumers. And we're GONNA see a huge shift. In general of how people are using technology how people are interacting with computing devices. What motivates me in in relation to accessibility is really two things? The first one is the need to make this mainstream technology fully the accessible. If we don't make sure that a blind person can use virtual reality application or a deaf person can experience virtual tool experience then these populations these people will just be marginalized from all kinds of different Experiences and applications of this new technology. So that's that's on the on the one hand and on the other hand I also think that this new type of computing technology can solve a lot of accessibility needs so so for example. Let's say a person with low vision might have difficulty Way Finding you might have difficulty getting from campus purpose to a nearby store for sighted person. You can okay you can easily pull out your phone pullout Google maps and you can use it to navigate their but for a person with low vision. It might be very difficult difficult to see the map on their phone and keep track of their environment and walk all at the same time. So it's a great opportunity to be able to use augmented reality so we can augment the users path with this virtual indicator of where they can go so that's just one example of a need of a certain population of people with disabilities that I think can be addressed with this new type of technology cularly. Well yeah more specifically used to As you were just starting to say you study ways to design for people with with low vision. You've done a lot of work on that. Now I understand from your own history but why these group of people also why not look look the blind or the blind and visually impaired in general. That's a good question So yes I do myself have low vision. But that's not the only the reason that I study low vision so I did in fact start designing technology for blind people people who have no vision when I was in graduate school but what I was finding was that there's actually very little research on technology for people with low vision and unload vision in general at the same time. There's a ton of research on technology technology for blind people and I thought this was really interesting and I think that one of the reasons for this is that it's much easier to understand blindness you you can close your eyes and more or less experience. What a blind person is experiencing at a certain point in time but then when it comes to low vision? It's incredibly difficult to to describe what someone sees and I know this personally my entire life people have been asking me. What can you see and I really don't know how to answer that question because first of all I don't have a baseline I don't know what you can see and second of all it changes with time and space and context and there's so much more to seeing than you know whether I can recognize a letter on a chart or whether I can recognize you from I'm across the hall? So Vision is incredibly complicated. So that's a major challenge but it's also it's incredibly interesting and it made you the perfect person to understand. Try to grapple. Yes so I do think I have unique insight here and I think that's incredibly important when doing research I think it's important important to leverage. What whatever you personal experiences in insights? We have to our

I'll be getting reaction from Democratic Congressman David Cellini he is on the Shiri and Foreign Affairs committees and our correspondents and analysts are also standing by first let's go to CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta and Jim the is it is ramping up his constitutional clash with House Democrats that's right Brianna the White House and starting a constitutional fight with House Democrats over the impeachment and the president's legal team has just fired off a letter to Speaker Nancy Pelosi refusing to cooperate with the investigation the president is stoking these tensions declaring that he won't great with what Republicans are calling a kangaroo court meanwhile CNN has also confirmed the whistleblower at the center of the inquiry wrote a memo describing a White House official listened in on Mr Trump's conversation with Ukrainian president and characterizes that conversation as quote crazy and frightening the official was quote left shaken by what Mr Trump was saying during the call it's a fraud escalating standoff with House Democrats President Trump is refusing to cooperate with the equipment quarry in a letter to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi the White House accuses Democrats of trying to play politics stating your unprecedented actions left the president with no choice in order fill his duties to the American people the Constitution the executive branch and all future occupants of the office of the Presidency President Trump and his administration cannot participate in you're partisan and unconstitutional inquiry under these circumstances a key signal White House is ready for combat the finish ration- blocked the US ambassador to the European Union Gordon Sunland from telling what he knows about the president's phone call with the leader of Ukraine about Joe Biden Secretary of State Mike Pompeo was mom on the subject House Democrats Warn White House stonewalling won't make their inquiry go away the failure to produce this witness the failure to produce these documents we consider yet additional strong evidence of obstruction of the constitutional functions of Congress a CO equal branch of government. The president tweeted Sunland won't be testifying I would the Senate embassador sunland are really good ban great American to testify but unfortunately he would be testifying before totally compromised kangaroo court an echo of gop talking points what we see in this impeachment is a kangaroo court and chairman shift is acting like a militia captain kangaroo a source familiar with internal White House Russian said the decision to silence Sunland is part of a new aggressive counter impeachment strategy that source told CNN quote the days of playing nice are done vying posture comes even as the president continues to insist his call was perfect. The people understand it's a scam. They're trying to win an election in twenty twenty by using Richmond if you look at that call perfect call Democrats are zeroing in on an exchange of tax between sunland and top US diplomatic Ukraine Bill Taylor appeared worried that the administration was holding ag Ukraine around the time of Mr Trump's July twenty fifth call as I said on the phone I think it's crazy to withhold security assistance for help with political campaign someone replied bill I believe you are incorrect about President trump's intentions the president has been crystal clear no quid pro quos of any ride I suggest we stopped the back and forth by text before Sunland sent that response he called the president? CNN is learn White House national security officials rambled contain the fallout of Mr Trump's comments on the call including moving the rough transcript of the conversation to a more secure system fellow Republicans see no wrongdoing joint president's doing his job president when when you're talking about the hard earned tax dollars of the American people going to a foreign government the president's going make sure that there is no corruption there still a new Washington Post poll found fifty eight percent agree that the impeachment inquiry should have begun a huge jump from over the summer trump ally senator Lindsey Graham calling on the president's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani to talk to lawmakers Giuliani's response love Lindsey but I still a lawyer have to deal with privilege now Democrats sound like they want to hear from Sunland I this is sort of like a classical Dixon type Watergate action which is cover-up often becomes even worse than the crime itself so the the White House and the State Department continued to orchestrate this massive cover up I stopped being witnesses that had actually prepared to testify now sooner ministration officials just wrapped up a conference call with reporters about this letter to the House Speaker Nancy Pelosi officials were asked on that call what Democrats would have to do in order to secure the cooperation of the White House in the impeachment inquiry one administration officials said the White House did not want to get into hypotheticals at this point indication that the White House at this point is digging in its heels and daring Pelosi to take Mr trump court Brianna it is not a stretch describe what we're seeing right now playing out here in the nation's capital as a constitutional battle that is headed for the courts the stakes have not been asya would say Brianna since the days of Bill Clinton's impeachment and perhaps Watergate Reihana Jim Acosta at the White House thank

"Hello hey kasim how are you i'm good how are you would really well honestly how to cash high kes thanks so much for doing this and we have shiri appleby with us when does the new season of unreal it's coming out july seventeenth came out come out on july sixteenth and it's not gonna be on lifetime anymore right now on hulu awesome caz so tell us what's going on with your boyfriend okay so my boyfriend and i have been together for two years and i love him he's amazing i realize i forgot to mention this before but we're actually long distance to the only thing that we ever fight about is that he doesn't like when i post like revealing quote unquote pictures on instagram or like when i wear certain outfits when i go out we've had this like fight once like every few months pretty much and i like don't really know how to have the conversation because it never really ends with like a a clear ending i'll be like oh you only feel 'cause the patriarchy and he doesn't like to be told that and the most recent time we thought about this was because he he's a professional skater and his sponsor posted a picture of him on their instagram in which she was wearing justice underwear because it was like a hot day and then i was like oh that's funny like you can't make fun of you can't like anything about me anymore because like there's a picture of you in your underwear on instagram and he was like oh that's a completely different thing because like you post pictures for people to see them and i was just caught in a moment and i'm an actor adam or your left at cal arts and so i'm just kinda worried that like in the future with things like this conversation's going to keep coming up because like at an acting you have to wear certain costumes or like kiss other people i know he's not comfortable with that either so my question is how do i talk to my boyfriend about this when it's gonna eventually come up again we'll so how how far away you don't tell us his city but you guys are are pretty far away from each other he lives in northern california where i'm from like in the bay area and i'm down here in la because here's the thing some times sometimes people get them and i've been very guilty of this in sort of a cycle of jealousy especially if you if you're not around each other a lot the idea that he feels like you're getting hit on all the time and he reacts in sort of an misogynistic and maybe appropriate way like how just how people sort of feed into the blank of communication and to tell you i have no idea what the fuck i'm talking about do i need to force i wonder if like why he's agitating you in in this way does that make sense yeah like sometimes that happens when there's a distance growing and he's afraid of losing you sometimes it happens when there's a distance growing in somebody's do not not faithful and sometimes it it also happens out of professional competitiveness sort of my long version of this idea i guess is a little bit of how jealousy is used as manipulation a bit yeah and i think i don't know what what are the things that you really love about him he i mean i've dated really shitty guys before and he is the complete opposite of that he's really kind and he really thinks about me and he's like usually open to talking about his feelings and like he's just a very well adjusted person this is just like the one thing that he can't seem to understand like he's not usually misogynistic at all like my last boyfriend would get scott like mad about me like wearing things too but like in a more aggressive way i guess how often do you guys communicate did his talk every day oh we talk every day i would say that like being an actress is a really hard job in like if you you really gotta find somebody that's gonna just like support you through the whole thing and kind of like except that you know that's just part like it's just part of the job though scenes in those situations when i first got married or engaged in pregnant i did the sexy girls where i'd like.
