Browser Check or how not to annoy MTurk Workers

Just a quick reminder that before you launch your HIT, check your survey/experiment/whatever’s online presence using different browsers.

If workers can’t see images or video, or hear the music or the words that get spoken, they’ll get frustrated and we don’t want that.

And while it is fine to announce the type of browsers that the study works on (suggesting that it won’t work on other browsers), announce this BEFORE someone accepts the HIT.

Now back to our regularly scheduled programming.
