On 5-9 July 2021 the LEAD-ME Summer School online event took place

On 5-9 July 2021 the LEAD-ME Summer School online event took place ( This year’s edition was called "Eye tracking in media accessibility research - methods, technologies and data analyses" and RealEye helped educate new neuroscientists by providing the software for all of the participants. Moreover, our CEO - Adam Cellary, was one of the Guest Speakers talking about webcam-based eye-tracking, having the RealEye tool as an example. You can watch his lecture here:

During the workshops, participants in groups designed and analyzed their own experiments. Here you can find the outcomes:

  • The impact of intralingual subtitling on memory and comprehension (See results)
  • Fully automatic vs. human subtitling: comprehension, user experience and perception (See results)
  • Serif – Sans Serif Subtitle Font: Legibility and Audience Preference (See results)
  • What influences consumers' choices? (See results)
  • Conventional vs. Creative Subtitles: Task Load, Enjoyment and Preferences (See results)
  • Comparing the reception of machine-generated subtitles compared to human-created subtitles (See results)

After the event, we asked participants of the LEAD-ME Summer School what do they think about working with the RealEye platform during their workshops. The results speak for themselves:

We would like to thank the organizers for preparing this extraordinary event and all participants for their work, especially during the workshops - great ideas, fantastic research! We are glad that we could be part of that!
