‘How to Collect Speech Data with Human Rights in Mind’ - The users' view

Julia Krüger

From the perspective of user-centred psychological research, both the user's behaviour during the interaction with a voice-controlled system and the user variables predicting his/her behaviour are of interest. Of further interest is the user's subjective experience of the interaction, which here in terms of holistic UX means all internal processes (ideas, attitudes, thoughts, feelings, etc.) that occur before, during or after the interaction. % In order to achieve these research goals, it is necessary in terms of experimental design and data collection to a) evoke an evolving interaction (i.e. to enable mostly longer interaction sequences), b) to use as many modalities as possible to collect user information (i.e. to collect multimodal data), and c) to enable the user to reflect on the interaction afterwards (i.e. to conduct user interviews). % This leads, in addition to known difficulties of the ethical and legal feasibility of collecting sensitive user information, to extensive reflections regarding fears of data misuse and trade-offs of self-disclosures from the participants themselves. These are the focus of this presentation. % In the course of collecting the Last Minute corpus, a multi-modal data set with interactions between subjects and a speech-based system simulated by using the Wizard-of-Oz technique was collected. % Semi-structured interviews on the subjective experience of the interactions revealed a range of ideas in this regard and different degrees of self-disclosure and data misuse fears. % The four types of experience developed from this will be presented with a focus on these in order to bring the users' perspective on data protection and related fears into the workshop.
