Dear all,

I hope you'll allow me to post this here, even if it's in English.

I'm (desperately) looking for native speakers of Spanish (who also speak English) who would be willing to fill in a short online questionnaire for a BA research project at the Radboud University of Nijmegen, the Netherlands. We're having problems finding enough native speakers of Spanish and I was hoping to find some on this forum. All that respondents need to do in the questionnaire is evaluate some speech fragments.

This is the link to the questionnaire
http://www.let.ru.nl/ciw-bc/webenquetes/Talking_websites_2008/enquete_toegang.php?taal=spaans

I'd be grateful for any help. I'd also be very grateful if you could forward the link to the questionnaire to anyone you think might be willing to participate. Some basic knowledge of English is required.

Thank you in advance

Tried to answer the questionnaire twice but it did not work Dec 14, 2008

Dear Dr. Berna,

I tried to listen to the audition to answer the questionnaire and even though I downloaded the necessary plugin it did not work. The link sent me directly to the questionnaire and nothing to listen to. Maybe I am doing something wrong, so if you know what it is, you can email me directly and I will be happy to help you.

Try Internet Explorer Dec 14, 2008

Hi Ana María,

The same thing happened to me when I used Mozilla Firefox. I switched to Internet Explorer and it worked well there.

Hope it helps


Saludos

Internet explorer Dec 14, 2008

Dear Ana Maria,

Thank you for (attempting!) to fill in our survey. I'm afraid there are technical problems with Mozilla Firefox that we can't solve.

So, yes, I'm afraid it only works in Internet Explorer.

And thank you for your kind cooperation

Berna

some feedback Dec 16, 2008

I just wanted to warn to those in a hurry that it takes 10 mins, rather than 5.

Also, I have found some of the Spanish questions (I presume they are a translation from English) a bit challenging: "en absoluto desacuerdo" as opposed to "completamente deacuerdo" (?), so, whatever happens, one has to agree (?)

Well, interesting project nevertheless.

Regards,

Marta
