ZoeWangPhoto BAZoe's project investigates the availability, accessibility, and acceptability of multilingual and low-literate COVID-19 information in the Netherlands. To have a comprehensive image of the role of multilingualism in the Netherlands during the pandemic, four groups of participants will be recruited nationwide: non-Dutch speakers, minority language speakers, low-literate L1 Dutch speakers, and a control group consists of speakers with Dutch as their L1 and who are not low literate. Questionnaires and semi-structured focus group interviews will be performed to compare the accuracy and immediacy of public information to people of different linguistic backgrounds. Additionally, an eye-tracking experiment will investigate whether the information available also attracts visual attention and influences participants' behavior.
