Subjective Inputs

The subjective questionnaire consists of five input screens itemised below. At present it is in five european languages (Greek, French, Portuguese, Swedish and English) in the form of a Lookup Table (tab deliminated ascii file). A bar code version using the same questions has also been developed.

Items are selected by use of the mouse, drag down menu and mouse button or tab key, curser keys and return key.
